If your children love bugs or insects, you are going to want to check out this insect book collection. It is filled with favorite fiction and non-fiction books. You will find books for preschoolers thru third graders in the collection.
Why include a wide range of books? Just because an insect book is a picture book doesn’t mean it is written on a young child’s reading level. Conversely just because a book is written for older children doesn’t mean that you can’t picture or caption walk through it with your kids. We used to do that with my son when he was little. He loved non-fiction book from the big kids section.
