Bugs by the Numbers

Bugs by the NumbersThe creators of Alphabeasties: And Other Amazing Types have done it again! Bugs by the Numbers is here and is just as amazing!

Bugs by the Numbers uses the same creative layout, this time using numbers (instead of letters) and different typefaces to make up different kinds of bugs from termites to dragonflies to earthworms to beetles.

Each page presents a different bug and breaks down bug facts by the numbers. For example, check out the beetle made up of the number 850. Why 850 you ask? Because the Rhinoceros beetle is the middleweight champion of the beetle world and is so strong it can carry 850 times its own weight, the same as you lifting more than 90 rhinoceroses! Fun facts like these are scattered throughout the book and young readers will love figuring out each bug as they turn the page.

Everything about this book is ingenious and I hope we see more from the creators, Sharon Werner and Sarah Forss.
