Profiling more than 200 insects and bugs, from beetles and butterflies to spiders and scorpions, find out what bugs eat, which are poisonous, which live the longest, and which can be found in your own backyard. Plus, learn about the products we get from bugs, such as honey, ink, silk, and jewelry, and how bugs and insects play important roles in our world.

Catalog entries packed with facts provide at-a-glance information, while locator icons offer immediately recognizable references to aid navigation and understanding, and fact files round off the book with fun facts such as record breakers and timelines. Each pocket-size encyclopedia is filled with facts on subjects ranging from animals to history, cars to dogs, and Earth to space and combines a child-friendly layout with engaging photography and bite-size chunks of text that will encourage and inform even the most reluctant readers.

We believe in the power of discovery. That's why we create books for everyone that explore ideas and nurture curiosity about the world we live in.
