I LOVE using bug and insect books to teach little kids about this topic. They are a fabulous tool for teaching children about the world they live in. Some of these books are nonfiction and will teach children all about the given insect or bug. Some are a combination of fun facts and a silly story. Others are simply just for fun. Either way, here are our favorite bug and insect books.
