This exciting and fact-filled series gives lively and informative answers to many of the What, How, Why and Which questions that young children ask about the world around them. Question Time: Creepy-crawlies asks a variety of questions such as "What makes a glow-worm glow?", "Why do spiders spin webs?", "Why do honeybees like flowers?" and "How do caterpillars grow up?" plus many more. Carefully researched and created to fulfil early-learning needs, each book covers a popular subject that will stimulate children's curiosity. The topics are explored in great detail with engaging text, and supported by colourful and inviting illustrations which bring the creepy-crawlies vividly to life. Further information is supplied alongside photographs, amazing facts appear with eye-catching cartoons, and a Now I Know feature reinforces the facts that have been explained. This focused approach will provide a solid basis of knowledge, as well as inspire and educate.
