Have you ever been bugged by an insect? While it's true these little creatures can pester people, they do plenty of good things, too. In fact, these unappreciated critters are really important for humans and the world. Unfortunately, as many as 44,000 species of insects have been driven to extinction over the last 600 years. But we need bugs! These quiet helpers are some of the most interesting animals in nature.

You might want to skip the introduction page, depending on the sensitivity of your children, as it deals with mosquitos spreading disease and being the number one killers of humans (it doesn't mention that this is geographically dependent). Other than that, this is a great book for encouraging children to respect bugs and celebrate their role in our world. It mentions the environmental impact of pesticides affecting bees and butterflies several times.
