Introduce your little genius to the essential first words related to all things bugs!

From the #1 bestselling science author for kids comes a simple and colourful introduction to the first 100 bug words every baby should know. Each spread in this primer focuses on 8 to 12 words related to bugs-from caterpillar to cocoon, dung beetle to pillbug, and more!

Chris Ferrie’s latest offering is the perfect way to introduce basic concepts to even the youngest bug enthusiast. After all, it’s never too early to become a bug buff!



Say what? Another new Chris Ferrie book? Look at being spoilt with our sciency books during this weird time of uncertainty!

This time we have an awesome new science books for cool kids who are into awesome things like bugs and the weird and wonderful words to describe everything to do with them! Ferrie writes books for baby geniuses who are in full sponge-mode and ready to absorb all the sciency goodness on offer… and the adults in their lives who will probably learn something, too… 

Collected here, you’ll find a range of words, some easy, some hard, some fun to say aloud in silly voices. All informative!

You’ll find easier words like nest, legs, shell, slug, web, ladybug, and bite.

Harder words like colony, pollination, regeneration, contraction, spinnerets, and microscopic.

Weirder, lesser heard words like forcipules, clitellum, metasoma, hypostome, aposematic, and stridulation. 

It’s targeted at ages 0-3, but is fun for the whole family, even if you don’t have any kids in the target group and are just a massively proud bug nerd! 

And would you get a load of those adorable illustrations?
