Joining the ranks of Texas Parks and Wildlife's acclaimed Learn About... series, this educational activity book features what are probably the most numerous and easily observed of Texas' animal residents. Here children from six to twelve are introduced to the marvelous world of "bugs"-- that great host of hopping, crawling, flying, and buzzing creatures more properly called insects.
Youngsters can color eye-catching line drawings of many of the most common, as well as unusual, Texas insects-- all of them interesting, some of them beneficial, and some, without question, pests. The accompanying easy-to-read text gives important facts about insect lifeways and insects' roles in nature. Interspersed throughout are instructive games and suggested activities. Included, too, is a 17" by 22" coloring poster.
