There’s just something about a good book that sparks curiosity, intrigue, and really just captivates a child. With spring around, we have really been enjoying some fascinating books about bugs! With little creatures and insects returning outside, I can’t wait to get into learning about butterflies, honey bees, and ladybugs, while observing the real things!


With my five-year-old, we actually went through a patch where he was just not that into reading. While it broke my book-loving heart, I patiently waited for him to get his spark back.

We bought a few new titles, visited the library, laid out our new finds in interesting places, and waited for him to get excited about reading. One of our favourite new to us books is Bugs: A Stunning Pop-up Look at Insects. It’s gooorgeous! Because we are loving some bug-themed books, here are our picks for our favourite books about bugs!
