Comments about National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Bugs:
I gave this to my 4 year old granddaughter, and my 2 year old is facsinated by it, too. We have already spotted insects we know and looked them up. The facts are detailed but written as a child can understand them. They love finding new bugs - especially the ones with funny (or scary!) names. Well made, this book will last for years to come, even with our 2 year old's reputation of being a page tearer. She sits quietyly looking at the pages, saying, "I love you, bug". It's a wonderful book.
