Join the Lorax—Dr. Seuss's beloved icon of environmentalism—as he introduces children to nine insects currently endangered by human activity. An empowering book that teaches kids simple actions they can take to help protect and save them!
I am the Lorax and I’ve come here to say that some bugs need our help (and they need it TODAY)!
This rhymed easy-reader narrated by the Lorax explains how insects are vital to life on Earth, and how some of them—including bumble bees, ladybugs, monarch butterflies, and dragonflies—are threatened with extinction. Young children will learn how these common backyard insects help humans to survive (by pollinating our crops, for example), and how humans—including kids—can make simple changes that will help these insect species to survive as well!
Illustrated with bright, cheerful art and full-color photographs, Hug a Bug includes suggestions on growing native plants, reducing energy use to combat climate change, a list of recommended Web sites, glossary, index, and instructions for building a simple bee house. It's a perfect choice to nurture a love and respect for the natural world—as well as a love of reading!
