Picture Books About Bugs

February 28, 2019 2 Comments

Kids are so fascinated with bugs. There’s a natural curiosity to know what they do, how they live, and answer the question, “Will they hurt me?”

Perhaps that question only follows a bee sting, as it did my son. But, I figured a little caution paired with his curiosity wouldn’t be a bad thing. 😉

On a sunny day, my kids can be found out in the backyard, adopting a roly-poly’s, making ant tunnels with sticks, or watching garden spiders catch their afternoon snack.

Science right at their fingertips.

To answer some of their questions and discover more, I compiled a list of picture books about bugs. Here are some of their favorites…

    Bugs are very fascinating for small kids Jessica! I have seen it with my kids growing up. Although my daughter is scared of bees after being stung as a little Girl! These books are very cute, thanks for sharing. I hope your Spring is going good, we are actually getting some rain now! Happy Wednesday, Terri xo.
