Are You a Beetle? (Backyard Books)
Did you know the six-spotted tiger beetle is one of around 400,000 types of beetle in the world? A six-spotted tiger beetle is bright metallic green and, like the tiger, it has sharp and very powerful jaws! Are you a Beetle? will give young children an inside look at the everyday life of this fascinating insect. They can find out where the mother beetle buries her eggs, how the egg hatches into a tiny caterpillar, how the adult beetles grab passing ants and spiders to eat from the safety of their burrow and much more.
These delightful nature stories introduce young children to backyard critters. Written in an engaging style, with a format that includes detailed illustrations, this series explores the life and characteristics of the insect; how it grows, the food it eats, and the dangers it might encounter. The back two pages of each book include more interesting facts about the insect. The next time kids explore their backyard, they will know a little more about the insects they find!
