Without insects to pollinate flowers, we would have no fruit. This series takes readers (Ages 8-12) on a historical journey, examining how people coped in the past and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. Each book features full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles to heighten interest, making the series attractive even to reluctant readers. Nasty stinging creatures that destroy crops and spread disease-if that's your opinion of insects, read this fascinating book to discover the other side of the story. Without bees, we would have no honey. Maggots eating a dead animal are not a pretty sight-but without them, we would have to find some other way to dispose of dead animals.
