My Little Book of Bugs
This chunky board book is perfect for little critters who want to learn about... little critters.
Sixteen native bugs from Te Papa’s collection - all of which could be found in your own backyard! - are captured in a series of close-up stills in glorious, vivid detail. (I nearly stroked the furry moth with my finger, it looked so real.)
The accompanying text - in both English and te reo Māori - gives an interesting gem or two about each critter. (Dragonflies can catch other insects while flying in the air - who knew?)
From the turquoise-armoured pāpapa (beetle) to the humble housefly, to the loudest insects in the world (drumroll please… cicadas!), this book is sure to satisfy your budding entomologist.
