The Alphabet of Bugs - An ABC Book #BookReview

*I received the item/s for the purpose of review.  All opinions are a 100% my own.
I have a toddler just starting to take interest in learning the alphabet, and my first grader really starting to take on reading now so I was excited to check out The Alphabet of Bugs - An ABC Book written by Valerie Gates and beautiful photo illustrations by Ann Cutting. 
The book was full of big colorful, interesting photos of bugs that my children were drawn to right away.  My first grader had difficulty reading all the names of the bugs and understanding them, however he did enjoy learning about the bugs in each page while we sat to read it together.  Great for learning more about some amazing little creatures.  The photographs are wonderful and eye-catching.  The bugs in the book aren't everyday bugs you would expect to see in a book geared for ages 3-5 years old, it took me by surprise but it was also refreshing to see.  Great for anyone just for the photos alone.   
"Do you know what a Chrysina resplendens or a Papilionidae butterfly looks like? Travel through the alphabet with The Alphabet of Bugs to learn about the many beautiful and unusually named bugs found in nature—and brush up on those ABCs as well! Valerie Gates’s charming alliterative style paired with Ann Cutting’s stunning photographs of all types of bugs is sure to delight curious children and adults alike.

Children who already know their basic bugs will broaden their horizons, and parents who are tired of simple butterflies and beetles will find this book worth rereading. Spectacular photographs of insects of all kinds will inspire children to learn more about the different creatures found in the natural world. And while children learn about bugs, they are also learning the alphabet through silly sentences. This is an ideal gift for new parents and for young nature-loving children!" -
