Further, science, fun biology facts, and big vocabulary such as "exoskeleton" are introduced throughout this book. I enjoyed it but was puzzled by the ending, which I thought was weird.

The hidden bugs prove fun for students, as they can search for them all, but I fear that may take away from the message of each page.
There is a lot going on in each page, making the children want to pay close attention.

Each page has a set number of bugs on that page for the child to count, and the names of the bugs are in alphabetical order backwards.
So number twenty-six has a bug with a name that starts with "a". B Color was one of the prominent visual elements in this book. The background colors on each page were energetic and pretty, going into an ombre form. The colors of the plants and bugs were more muted and less loud. The colors contributed to the story by using more muted colors for the bugs so that the reader would have to really pay attention to them in order to count them all.
