I don’t know why I love children book, especially picture book.

This book is a very good guide book about insects, especially its larvae. It’s very informative and entertaining at the same time (even for an adult like me) and I definitely love the cute illustrations.

I like the way the author described food chain and survival in insects world, very suitable for children. Children will learn about larvae and its life cycle from insect parent’s perspective not from human’s perspective.

This book is written in Q&A style. For example:

  • How many babies will I have?
  • Will larvae eat what I eat?
  • What will people think of my larvae? (This one is hilarious) 😀

Anyway, there’s a quite shocking fact I have just discovered about butterfly.

Q: What should I do once my children have wings? Will I need to teach them how to fly?

A: I’m afraid there won’t be time for that. By the time your young spread their wings, you will have passed away.

I was like WHAT?? Poor butterfly. I thought a butterfly could live for years

Summary:  I really enjoy reading this book. I wish there were more pages from this book!!
