      Little Kids First Big Book of Bugs by Catherine D. Hughes; National Geographic Kids Staff The experts at National Geographic present a delightful reference that introduces young children to bugs of all kinds: big and small, jumping and crawling, colorful and creepy. This charming book explores backyard favorites, such as ladybugs and lightning. For each insect the author informs you of the name, the body parts are labeled and each insect has its own question and answer to it. The book also gives at least 10 lifecycle sequences of a variety of insects along with ecosystem information on a variety of insects/5(3).

      The incredible capacity for learning amongst bees and other social insects has been documented since Victorian times. Charles Darwin himself .   One of the biggest impacts of insect loss is on the many birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish that eat insects. “If this food source is taken away, all these animals starve to death,” he said.

      The title of world’s smallest insect is currently held by Dicopomorpha echmepterygis, a kind of fairyfly measuring about millimeters. Fairyflies are parasitoids of the eggs of other insects. The featherwing beetle, on the other hand, is a "free-living" insect, in that it lives independently. Stag Beetle The three-inch-long male stag beetle may be most easily recognized by its spiky front antlers -- also known as mandibles -- which are a key part of courtship rituals and wrestling matches; you'd have more to fear from the slightly smaller females, though, which don't have the giant spikes but do have a more fearsome bite.
