This fun and educational children's colouring book includes drawings of 44 European insects to colour and learn about. It will inspire kids to explore their surroundings to discover what creepy crawly beetle or beautiful butterfly is hiding in their own backyard. Each insect is featured on a full-page with a title and a caption stating an interesting fact about the bug. Children will learn to identify common insects as well as get hours of enjoyment colouring. The book also has four centre-pages with smaller colour images of all the insects included so children can colour in their insects accurately if they want to. The drawings are detailed, but accessible and include many butterflies, beetles, bees, caterpillars, ladybirds, moths, dragonflies, grasshoppers, wasps and crickets.
