DK Smithsonian Bug Hunter

Smithsonian Nature Activity Guides from DK

Published By DK Publishing, Inc

Guest Book Review by Ashley age 7

I enjoyed this book very much because it was so interesting!  This book taught me alot of information about bugs that I did not know.  I really enjoyed the different projects.  I learned how to build a butterfly bar, a bee home and a moth trap.  I really liked the fold-out cards that helped me to identify different bugs that I found.  My favorite parts of the book were learning about aphids and about the louse.  I am now officially a BUG HUNTER!
