About the Book

"Bugs, including ants, beetles, grasshoppers, and more, have unique skills that combine to create a safe and welcoming world for everyone-even people!-to live in"--

Book Synopsis

Secret cities buzz and bustle
with itty-bitty hard work hustle.
Crouch down low--hush. You'll see

how bugs build a community!

Ready with their magnifying glass, camera, and scrapbook, two young sisters head into nature to discover all the bugs they can. And these critters are hard at work! From carpenter ants chewing up old trees (like builders clearing a construction site) to butterflies spreading pollen (like gardeners planting seeds) to crickets making beautiful sounds (like musicians playing instruments), bugs belong to a busy world just like people.

With amazingly detailed photographic illustrations of realistic creatures and environments--created with coffee grounds, flower petals, foam footballs, and more--and a bouncy, rhyming text, Hustle Bustle Bugs will have young readers looking more closely at the grass, leaves, and trees around them--and appreciating the community they share!

Review Quotes

"It's a challenge to write an informational book in rhyme without the word choices seeming forced, but this one succeeds. With text that flows naturally; it begs to be read aloud."--School Library Journal

"Rhyming couplets meet larger-than-life creatures that are loosely considered bugs."--Kirkus Reviews
