This is a brilliant book for the curious young non-fiction fan. The bright colours and eye-catching and appealing layouts are spot on for 4-7 year olds, so although the blurb pitches this for ages 6-10, I think it’s a great joint read for younger kids and at only 33 pages of content it’s just the right length.
There’s a great selection of random facts that we just HAVE to know the answer to, like Can bugs dance? and Are there bugs in Antarctica? Warning – this will raise a lot of additional questions from young readers so be prepared to do more research! Helpfully, the book includes a list of further resources, and some free worksheets.
Since I never miss an opportunity for stealth education, this seems a great time to do some bug counting in the garden or on a walk. Check out this blog on other easy STEM activities for youngsters.

Author Bio –
Two Umbrellas is an educational publishing company that fuses education and storytelling. We offer books and activities to help parents and educators empower tomorrow’s leaders.
Our founders, Anthony Puttee and Addie Broussard, love to travel. Anthony’s favorite trip was to Antarctica and he has included some of his personal photos in this book. Addie has traveled solo around the world. While in Portugal, she encountered a unique insect, which inspired a children’s book called The Beedog, which was published in 2018. The idea for Do Bugs Wear Shoescame from a playful team meeting on a rooftop in Mexico.
