Get ready to talk creepy-crawlies! For the month of October, the Moms of Master Books are talking about BUGS, the super-cool, information-packed new book by William Zinke. Discover the hidden beauty and spectacular designs we often overlook in these works of our Creator!
Within these vivid, full-color pages children will discover God’s purpose for creating insects, and the corruption caused by sin. They will also see the world’s largest insects, insects designed with camouflage, the most beautiful insects, the weirdest insects, and more!
With their alluring beauty, incredible design features, and limitless variety, bugs are a living testament to an all-wise, wonderful Creator. What you will see page-after-page are these creatures doing just what they were designed to do, and doing it well. God is amazing!
- Why did God create such pesky insects?
- In what way are bugs signposts to God’s brilliant creativity?
- What types of butterflies are bigger than some birds?
From the moment this book was introduced I was dreading it and my son was elated. I am not a bug person by no means so I did not think I was really going to enjoy this book. Boy was I wrong! This book was amazing. Incredibly interesting facts about bugs I have never heard of or seen before in my life and the illustrations are beautiful and horrifying at the same time.
My son loved reading about the different bugs people eat and how they tasted-which just grossed me out. I think his favorite part though was the 12 fact card at the end of the book. I immediately punched them out and he ran to his friends house to try and gross them out with the pictures and all the interesting facts on the back. Later that he began to quiz me to see if I knew all the bug info that he know knew. Never have I been so excited to not know information before. Seeing my little man light up describing these little hideous bugs to me and tell me about them was an absolute joy.
You will learn all about amazing creepy crawlers, jumbo giants, weird & wonderful bugs, camouflaged bugs, and beautiful bugs (including butterflies). You also get a wonder vocabulary section called Words to Know. Also packed into this treasure is a little section called Creepy Cool that gives you a little tidbit fact about certain bugs. Such as butterflies taste with their feet and how the Click beetle will play dead for hours to avoid being eaten! Of course we cannot forget to see how God's word is woven into even this book! Close to the back the author gives us scripture to go along with some amazing bugs that we can find in the word in God.
Speaking of getting the book, if you would like to purchase Bugs! it is currently available on the NLPG site for $14.99.
