Be a Nat Geo Kids Super Reader
Preschool, lower elementary and English Language Learners (ELL) children will enjoy this leveled pre-reader of non-fiction about bugs a.k.a. insects, by National Geographic Kids.  This is part of the Kids Readers series on animals, including monkeys, bunnies, sloth, dogs, frogs, meerkats, sharks, and robots. It is available in print and e-book format.  Large, clear, close-up photographs of bugs and one sentence text on each page make the book a good choice for emerging readers. Correct scientific vocabulary is used to label the bugs’ body parts while using common everyday language in sentences.  Some bugs are common while others are unusual to North American environments.  Small print at the back of the book identifies each insect throughout the book.
Ideal for Alberta’s Grade 2 Science Curriculum: Small Flying and Crawling Animals or introduction to insects by pre-school and kindergarten students.  It would be best available in an I Can Read section of a school library.
