Monkey loves bugs and everything that has to do with nature. When we lived in Colorado we would spend days at the Butterfly Pavilion learning about new bugs and creatures. He also loves spending time outside looking at bugs on our new property and where we are renting trying to find new bugs that he’s never seen before. The boy can’t get enough nature. Of course that encourages Goose to be involved too. He wants to see every bug that Monkey discovers and he will actually join in the search as well.
Step Gently Out by Helen Frost and Rick Lieder has breathtaking photos of bugs close up so they are easy to examine and the gentle story that goes along creates a calm about nature.
This was one of my favorite books to read to the boys before bedtime because it set a very peaceful tone which is always helpful when you are putting two boys to bed in the evening.
I would recommend this book to anyone that has children but especially the ones that have children that love bugs. I plan to add this to our permanent collection in the near future.
