Bugs don’t hug! Or do they?

Mama and papa bugs can often be found cleaning up after their messy little ones, catering to their picky eaters, and even hugging their baby bugs. Readers learn just how similar people are to the insects around us, down to rituals like finding food, snuggling babies, and even creating birthday cakes made from poop!

A fun and clever nonfiction look at the inner workings of the insect world and perfect for backyard scientists. The funny cartoon illustrations are sure to make bug-crazed people of all ages laugh out loud as they learn all about six-legged parents and their kids.
