I have finally found a bug book for everybody. Yes, that's right, a bug book for boys and girls who like bugs as well as those who don't. It's about something every kid as wondered at least once in their life - Where do bugs go when it snows?

Zollars' wonderful illustrations cover a double page spread and show both what children do in winter as well as the 12 insects covered in the book. I particularly liked the pages that showed what was happening below ground or in the frozen pond. Glaser's rhyming narrative is perfect for teaching about bugs to a variety of early elementary ages. Since the she was very specific about the types of bugs mentioned (like Mourning Cloak Butterflies or Common Pondhawk Dragonfly) I was happy to see that Glaser had included a section at the end to talk more about each insect mentioned. Both the illustrations and the author's story work well together. The whole book feels warm and snuggly, even though it's about bugs sleeping outside.

I'm pretty sure this is the sweetest non fiction book about bugs that I've ever seen. It covers butterflies and ladybugs to hornets and ants. This is a great one for teachers but it can be fun at home too. Even if your child isn't super interested in bugs or science, it's a cool topic to talk about and get them thinking. I recommend picking this one up at the library and trying it out one night with your kids.
