The beautiful close-up photos allow the children to study a variety of bugs in great detail. Have they ever been able to study insects or spiders so closely? What types of bugs can they find in the garden? Do they look like the ones in the book?
The children could go on an expedition in your service’s garden or a park nearby or explore any bugs they can find in and around their homes. Maybe they could even create their own ‘bug diary’ with photos and drawings of what they observed.
With our book recommendations, we want to help you spark a conversation that leads children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Have the courage to go beyond the obvious STEM connections and embrace all questions that may come out of your discussion with the children.
