One Million Insects

One Million Insects is a hive of information about the various species of creepy crawlies that outnumber us humans 1.4 billion to one, with exciting little titbits about their sometimes-bizarre habits and life cycles. The chapters are organised into insect orders, introducing children to the scientific methods of classification. The book is full of colourful illustrations that give the insects charm and character, reminiscent of the style of Eric Carle’s classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Fox: A Story of Life and Death

Lyrical and measured, this beautiful picturebook explores a difficult subject through a family of foxes. It is subtle yet upbeat and the opening lines are worth quoting: ‘The ground is frozen. The branches are bare. Dead leaves crunch underfoot. But look closely. Listen carefully. Life is stirring in the shadows.’
I love that a book about the circle of life starts with the dead time of the year rather than the more expected spring start.
