Busy With Bugs Review and Giveaway.

I received a book in the mail a couple weeks ago and I was very impressed with this title and publishing company. So I just knew I had to tell all of you about it and then they offered to do a giveaway as well so I knew you all would be happy:)

Busy with Bugs is written by Toni Albert and is published by Trickle Creek Books. Now, this may be done as a childrens book but as an adult, I even liked it. This is 160 Extremely Interesting Things to do with Bugs. If you have a child who loves bugs, then this is the book for them! I have a younger sister who likes ladybugs and certain, un-buggy, bugs:) Those ones that don't gross you out.. You know the ones I am talking about. Anyways, she is overjoyed with this book and loved looking at the pictures and reading the facts. Of course, there's also jokes in here too.

I really like that the whole format is big and the print is bold. Nice pictures and definitely will appeal to a child. And like I said, there is a ton of information! Then they have areas to write down notes and where you have seen types of bugs, etc. I absolutely love this book! It is nice enough that it could be bought as a gift and I would guess any child up to the age of 14 or so would be happy with it. Even if a child can't read, there are plenty of pictures.

This book can be bought off the Trickle Creek Books website or you can order it off Amazon. Or, for those of you who want to wait, you can enter my giveaway below and get your entries in for a chance at being the winner of this book.

Would love to win this book for me and my grandson. When we walk
we look for bugs and birds and of course airplanes. Another book The Incredible Coral Reef is another one written by Toni Albert. They all sound so interesting. Have a great day and we hope we win.
