The Best Insect Books For Preschoolers
It’s Spring and we have begun to see the insects, bugs and creepy crawlies come out. It’s so lovely to have the sun shining again. I thought winter would never end. My daughter and I are looking forward to spending more time in the garden and are planning to go on a bug hunt.
Today I have a fantastic list of children’s books about Insects. I hope you find something super useful. Enjoy.
Why Are Insects Important?
Insects are super important because they play a large role in supporting the environment and helping balance ecosystems. For example bees pollinate flowers and blossoms and help contril insect and plant pests. Some insects aerate the soil and act as decomposers. They help create top soil which is nutrient rich and vital for helping plants to grow.
What Is Bug Hunting?
Bug hunting is a fun activity you can do with the kids. Grab a bucket or a container and go outdoors on the search for bugs, insects and creepy crawlies. This can be super fun and you never know what insects you will find.
We have a free bug hunt printable at the end of this post if you’d like to extend kids learning and interest with the option to draw or write the insects they discover!
