They crawl among the grass and flowers in your garden. Though you may have spotted them creeping underfoot or flying around, you may not know how important these tiny creatures are to the ecosystem in your yard. With vivid, full-color photographs, Garden Minibeasts Up Close brings young readers face to face with the beasts and bugs in their backyards. The simple text allows readers to learn about each creature, looking at areas such as their anatomy, where to find them, what they eat, and even who eats them! Numerous large, colorful photographs and illustrations, plus a helpful glossary for unfamiliar terms, a further reading section, and an index, make these easy-to-read books perfect for young students.
