Butterfly, Flea, Beetle, and Bee:
What is an Insect?

What is an insect? Crickets, mosquitos, ladybugs, and many other creatures are all insects!

Clever rhymes from Brian P. Cleary and comical illustrations from Martin Goneau explain the traits that all insects have in common and help you determine which creatures belong in this six-legged group. Animal names are printed in color for easy identification, and the goofy CATegorical cats make learning fun!


“The energetic rhyming text and zany cartoon illustrations will captivate students and make it fun to learn about what makes each group distinctive. Goneau’s cartoon creatures nicely complement the facts that Cleary imparts in his rhythmic narrative… Solid additions to the series.” (School Library Journal, Series Made Simple)
