Walking sticks are some of the world's most fascinating insects! This book's easy-to-read text and larger-than-life photos bring the walking stick's world to life, introducing readers to a walking stick's diet, habitat, enemies, and methods of defense. Diagrams help readers investigate the concept of metamorphosis and identify body parts, from the walking stick's long legs to its wings. The digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems are also described. A step-by-step approach to scientific classification helps place walking sticks within the order Phasmida. Readers are also encouraged to consider the benefits and drawbacks of walking sticks, as well as how they impact our daily lives. From northern walking sticks to tropical walking sticks, 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.
