What is an insect? In this book, we explore the characteristics and life cycles of the most prolific and diverse class of animals in the world.  Macro photography, laminated pages, and the big book format engage the reader and bring the world of insects alive.


I am an Insect takes a look at many of the creatures in this intriguing group of animals. Clear diagrams show the lifecycles of a honeybee, dragonfly, and silkworm. Body parts and adaptations which make them uniquely suited to living in a wide variety of habitats are described and supported with beautiful close-up photographs. Use this big book as a basis for questioning, further investigation or just to read, discuss and enjoy the photographs.
