Everybody loves beautiful bees and butterflies, but what about kids who like more mucky creatures – the ones that live down in the dirt or eat their own poo? These minibeasts are just as deserving of attention. This beautifully illustrated title will explore the wonderful world of centipedes and millipedes.
Living down in the dark, damp places, find out the similarities and differences between these two creatures. How many legs do they really have? Why do you rarely see them in bright sunlight? How do they defend themselves from predators? What do these creatures look like in other places around the world?
Find out how to make a terrarium and watch millipedes close up.
Accessible, fact-filled text combined with cute, beautiful artwork results in a stunning non-fiction picture book.
Ideal for allowing children to learn more about minibeasts, but also for introducing them to habitats and understanding other living creatures.
Why not find the other titles in this series, too, about Ants, Snails and Worms.
