Trickle Creek Books Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!

As I have said before my kids LOVE books! My daughter and son are very interested in bugs during the spring and summer months, which is why I was happy to review Busy with Bugs, 160 Extremely Interesting Things to Do with Bugs. This book was written by Toni Albert and published by Trickle Creek Books. Trickle Creek Books is a small publisher that is committed to 'teaching kids to care for the Earth." I can't wait until spring so the kids and I can try out some of the great ideas in this book! This books teaches you how to build seven different bug traps, estimate the temperature of the air by listening to a cricket's chirp, and many many more things to do with bugs!

For kids who love bugs and bug adventures,
Busy with Bugs is a guide for exploring the miniature world of tiny animals. This book buzzes with information, fun facts, and 160 extremely interesting things to do with bugs. It teaches children to explore the anatomy, behavior, life cycles, and habitats of bugs in their own backyards and school yards. Reference pages include a glossary packed with information, a comprehensive index, lists of useful resources, and an invaluable guide to keeping bugs as pets.

Hi! I'm a new follower! Besides the giveaway book, I would be most interested in THE INCREDIBLE CORAL REEF. I would share this book with my preschool class during our unit on the ocean.

How fun! I loved bugs when I was little, so I'd love to have this book even though we don't have kids (yet). The incredible coral reef also sounds interesting. GFC follower.
