Insects: Animal Close-Ups Series

Insects: Animal Close-Ups Series

by Barbara Taylor




This new natural history series from Peter Bedrick, produced in collaboration with zoology experts at the Natural History Museum in London, introduces young learners to creatures in four different species - insects, sea creatures, monkeys and apes, and frogs and snakes. Photographs show each entire creature and then zoom in on fascinating details in close-up images. The simple but engaging design and accessible text make these volumes the perfect introduction to the animal kingdom.

The creepy crawlies we all know—and some we don't. We explore the amazing world of the insect, in alarming close-up.
