The Beedog: An Insect Discovery in Portugal by Addie Broussard

The Beedog: An Insect Discovery in Portugal

An award-winning picture book that will get little ones excited about science.

While building a unique sandcastle, Cora and Manny spot a rather curious insect.
Soon, the little scientists keep a watchful eye on the insect’s movements, while learning about the natural environment along the way.

A great book for STEM education and home-school projects or just curious little ones who love science. Book extras include fun, printable activities related to science learning and research.

This a beautiful book with fun illustrations that kids will appreciate. They can have fun seeking out extra items in the pictures.
The voice of the text is appropriate to young children and not boring for adults to read.It was also fun for us, as non Spanish speakers, to see unusual words in the pictures.
I like the explanations and extra resources.
