This book's facts are staggering: for example: there are more than 40,000 different types of ground beetles across the globe and an adult ladybug can eat 5,000 aphids in its lifetime. Up-close, color photographs and in-depth text teach pre-adolescents everything and more about beetle facts, trivia and care and feeding. The experiments are not too complicated but are involved enough for serious young scientists and are an excellent reference for science fair projects.
