    8. Content: Animals/BugsGrade: Pre-KThis book is perfect for the students in your classroom who are interested in nature, and especially insects! It's very informative and descriptive. Not only will you tell you about the details of an insect, but it also includes mathematic counting skills in there as well. For example, an insect has 3 body parts and 6 legs, can you count the ladybug and see if it is an insect or a bug?

    9. This is a science picture book about different kinds of insects and their characteristics. Targeted for the preschool-kindergarten age, it introduces basic concepts to differentiate insects, bugs, arachnids, and other kinds of creatures. The artwork is unusual for a science book in that it is collage art rather than drawings or photographs; but it is colorful and interesting, a nice (but non-essential) addition to any bug-loving child's library.

    10. This is a very good "Science" book for smaller children. My almost 3 year old granddaughter sat oh my lap and we read this together. It wasn't so boring that she lost interest in it and it had some key important factors that even young children could understand without it being REALLY BASIC. Lots of illustrations of various insects and bugs and tells what the difference is in them.
