Softcover, 16 pages, Ages 4-8, May 2001.

Insects are unique among the animals of the world because they alone have six legs. Insects are also likely to have three body segments, wings, and feelers on their heads, and to hatch from eggs. Kids will see an insect that tastes with its feet (a housefly) and one that hears through holes near its knees (a katydid). They will learn that some insects eat by sipping (butterflies), whereas others chew (grasshoppers), suck (mosquitoes) or soak up (houseflies) their meals.

Dimensions (in inches): 2 x 5-1/2.
