Insects & Me A-Z is full of interesting bug facts, affirming (and sometimes silly) "I" statements, colorful illustrations and a diverse cast of characters. Practice your letters while gaining a new appreciation for insects and yourself!

"This is a new staple for any kids library. I love how thoughtful and fun this book is. My kids and I learned and laughed throughout. I also really appreciated how inclusive the illustrations are. This is a great gift to any kid you know." 

"This book is amazing!!! Diverse, empowering, encouraging! So amazing! A true book for our next generation."

"Insects and Me A to Z is  a brilliant book with bug facts, strength-based affirmations, and a refreshingly diverse cast of characters."
