"Great tool for identifying children's bug finds."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is the third copy I have bought as an Early Childhood teacher because it makes information about NZ bugs readily accessible and visible to young children.

"Fantastic for pre-schoolers"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Has been a great resource for our Outdoor Session. Having life size pictures to compare against makes identification much easier for out-of-practice adults and preschoolers alike


Identifying New Zealand's insects, spiders and other land invertebrates is made simple with this guide. Includes over 300 life-size colour photographs.


Shortlisted for New Zealand Post Children's Book Award: Non-Fiction Award 2000.
