*I received free products for review purpose. I did not receive any compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are not always positive, but they are my personal and honest opinions. Other people's views and experiences with the product or products might be different from mine. 

In a book CRAWLING with fascinating facts, lively text and more than 400 amazing images of the weirdest and wackiest insects from all over the globe, the natural world experts at National Geographic have compiled the ultimate resource for children ages 7-10.  This fully photographic book profiles bugs, beetles, wasps, bees, ants caterpillars, butterflies, dragonflies, spiders, flies, crickets and grasshoppers, and centipedes and millipedes. Each profile is accompanied by cool Did You Know? facts and fact boxes that provide the scientific name, size, diet, and habitat of each insect. Selected as a 2014 Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students K-12 by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and the Children’s Book Council, this fresh, exciting and accurate title allows bug lovers to get up close and personal with these amazing creatures. 

Our review:
DD owns several books from National Geographic Kids and loves every single one of them. One of her favorite things to do is to memorize interesting scientific facts she learns from the books and telling everyone about them. As such, DD was really excited to have received The Ultimate Bugopedia to review. We love that every page is filled with colorful, detailed close-up photos of each bug. Along with the photos, there are excellent descriptions of each bug and interest facts about them. DD flipped through the pages and was excited to learn that some people think the spots on the ladybugs is an indication of the bug's age, but that's actually a myth. She was even more excited to learn that scientists have transferred the "light" gene found in fireflies into other organisms including mice, monkey's and cats. There was even a photo of a cat with a nose that lights up. We love this book and would not hesitate to recommend it to kids of all ages. It is a great book with amazing photos that will get kids excited about science.
