Synopsis

When John Himmelman was eight years old, he started his first Bug Club in a friend’s garage, and he’s been playing with insects ever since. Even now, on summer nights John is often in his wooded yard in Killingworth, Connecticut, flashlight in hand, searching for little creatures. Some of his most exciting discoveries are found just a few feet from his house! John co-founded the Connecticut Butterfly Association, is past president of the New Haven Bird Club, and both gives nature programs and makes school visits. He is an author and illustrator of over 75 books for children. John’s enthusiasm extends to his family—his wife is an art teacher, his son is an artist, and his daughter is an actress.

Just step outside on a summer's evening and listen. Almost everywhere you will hear a concert of sounds made by insects-often quite LOUD! Kids love to sing along, so why not? And with a new children's picture book in hand, this is a perfect teachable moment! In his new book, naturalist and author John Himmelman offers children the opportunity to see what these noisy bugs look like, how they make their noises (and it's not with their throats) and join in the sing-along fun.Scientifically accurate illustrations show the insects in all their unique, buggy glory.
