A simple, fully-illustrated introduction to insects comes packaged with a magnifier jar to encourage kids to explore and better understand the natural world around them.
The clear, easy-to-follow reference is designed for a young audience with large pictures and minimal text highlighting the most interesting things to notice about the most common insects in North America--butterflies, beetles, and other fascinating critters easily spotted in backyards or parks. Packaged with a magnifier jar, the book also highlights features and behaviors children can look for if they have the chance to observe an insect up-close. A portable checklist (to help explorers identify the common insects they'll encounter on a walk outside), and an interactive poster complete the package. An exciting resource for budding naturalists, this kit will get children (ages 4 and up) excited about experiencing nature up-close.
