By Hugh Danks

Kids are crazy about bugs! And kids and parents alike are crazy about the Bug Book and Bug Bottle. Packed with activities and packaged in its own collecting bottle, the full-colour book provides field notes to 47 bugs arranged by habitat, including pond, forest, ground, leaves, field, and flower. The ingeniously designed, safe plastic bottle is perfect for catching and viewing creepy crawlies, then letting them go unharmed(this is a bug kit with a conscience)!

Written by entomologist Hugh Danks, the Bug Book gives comprehensive information about these fascinating creatures - how they live, what they eat, unusual characteristics, and more. It offers simple, clear guidelines on how to collect and care for bugs, and equally helpful hints on which bugs not to catch. New to the kit are a fold-out bug chart for quick identification, a magnifier to see the critters up close, and a bug explorer's journal to record discoveries.

Discover how the whirligig beetle got its name, why fireflies light up, and how water striders walk on water. And then impress parents and friends - here are all the tools kids need to become bona fide bug experts!

Includes: The Bug Book, ventilated bug container with ruler lid, magnifiying glass, bug identification chart and bug journal.
