Beetles are some of the world's most fascinating insects! This book's easy-to-read text and larger-than-life color photos bring the beetle's world to life, introducing readers to a beetle's diet, habitat, enemies, and methods of defense. Diagrams help readers investigate the concept of metamorphosis and identify body parts, from the beetle's antennae to its elytra. The digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and nervous systems are also described. A step-by-step approach to scientific classification helps place beetles within the order Coleoptera. Readers are also encouraged to consider the benefits and drawbacks of beetles, as well as how they impact our daily lives. From ladybugs to dung beetles, young entomologists will enjoy uncovering the lives of these amazing creatures. Informative sidebars and Bug Bytes aim to peak readers' interest, while bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index enhance readability.
