This fun peephole book is full of facts to fascinate a young child, and provides a lively introduction to the world of creepy-crawlies. The unusual format encourages children to participate in reading, by guessing which creepy-crawly can be seen through the peephole, then turning the page to reveal the surprise. The book includes five of the most common creatures; a snail, a spider, a butterfly, a ladybird and a bee. Once each animal has been revealed, there is lots of further information about them, presented in a fun and very simple way.
