Respect the Insect is a funny book led by wacky bugs who show you all the ways they help us—from helping make chocolate to eating poo!

Find out the real story about the bugs all around us. Creepy crawlies do so much for us!
They make honey, eat waste, help make chocolate and more. And in this wacky book, these helpful critters are taking you on a grand tour of their homes! They just can't wait to tell you about all the good they do. They'll show you the special skills and features they have, explain why they're so important to the ecosystem, and generally make their case for why they deserve a little more credit.

You'll meet: the flesh-eating beetles who may sound creepy but are just misunderstood. In fact, they help museum staff clean up old specimens, and out in the wild, they make sure the world's forest floors aren't littered with dead creatures, saving us from very gruesome woodland walks the midges who are one of the only bugs able to pollinate cacao plants, and without whom there would be no chocolate! the wax moth caterpillars—one of the first species known to be able to safely digest plastic, who could hold the key to reducing this tough-to-break-down material And many, many more!

Without insects like the ones in this book, we wouldn't be here, but they are disappearing fast. This book introduces young readers to a loveable bunch of bugs, encouraging a new generation of mini-beast protectors.
Support your child's learning and gently introduce them to environmental issues with this colourful and fun book that's packed with fascinating facts.
