Bugs Big & Small God Made Them All Review

This month for the Moms of MasterBooks we reviewed Bugs Big & Small God Made Them AllBelow is my review about the books as well as further details about this months Facebook party. 

A moms review:
My children love bugs, so much so that we actually have a bug specimen board and a family of Madagascar Cockroaches (we have 4 adults and about 35 babies). So you can imagine how excited they were when this book arrived at our door. They immediately grabbed the book and began flipping through the pages before I even had a chance to look at it. This is what I heard next, "Wow, no way, mom come look at how cool this bug is."  

This informational, hardback book is 80 pages of buggy fun. It was written by Will Zinke who was homeschooled and now homeschools his own children. He is passionate about insects and holds a BS in biology. The book is broken into 6 sections: Amazing Creepy Crawlers, Jumbo Giants, Weird & Wonderful, Bugs in Camo, Bizarre and Beautiful and Words To Know. The full-color, glossy photographs are absolutely wonderful and incredibly detailed.

This book is great for children of all ages. Children will learn about where each bug lives, their body parts, how they got their names and more. Vocabulary and bug names are super easy for children to find because they are written in bold text and highlighted in light green. Throughout the book there are "Creepy Cool" purple triangles that provide interesting facts on various bugs. Like did you know that a Large toothed longhorn beetle spends up to 10 years of its life in the larva stage? In the back of the book there is a page with multiple bug related scriptures, a glossary of "Words to Know," and removable bug flashcards.

One of my favorite things about this book is that it highlights the beauty and incredible design of insects. All those stereotypes about bugs being dirty and gross will be completely eliminated after reading Bugs Big and Small!

More about the book:
Insects are small signposts to God’s brilliant creativity. With their alluring beauty, incredible design features, and limitless variety, they are a living testament to an all-wise, wonderful Creator. Children will see the world’s largest insects, insects designed with camouflage, the most beautiful insects, the weirdest insects, and more. What you will see, page after page, are these creatures doing just what they were designed to do, and doing it well. God is amazing!

This is a great book for the entire family and compliments any science curriculum. It is also the perfect companion for nature walk fieldtrips! Be sure to preview the book here.
