"As a Biologist working with bugs today in San Francisco, I see fewer children engaging with nature outside. The Backyard Bug Book for Kids reminds me of the books I used to read with vivid images of real bugs I could find right outside our home. This book is perfect for inspiring young naturalists and explorers curious about the world of bugs!"—Tim Wong, Entomologist at the California Academy of Sciences
