Most young children are captivated by insects and will happily while away hours in the garden observing the creatures that live there, and Helen Milroy’s Backyard Bugs is the perfect book for them. With a vibrant sturdy cover and alliterative title, young readers will be instantly drawn to this book and delighted to recognise and identify the bugs in their backyard. Published by Fremantle Press as a companion volume to Backyard Birds, each bug is colourfully depicted and accompanied by a simple descriptive phrase. The colours are rich and appealing, and the designs reflect Helen Milroy’s indigenous heritage. An ideal gift for budding entomologists.
