Bella Loves Bugs tells the story of a day in the life of a girl who is passionate about bugs, as she goes off to Forest School where she always has many creepy-crawly adventures with her fellow nature hero friends!

The book is packed with facts about bugs , some of which Bella regularly spots, but also includes the bugs she dreams about seeing one day--different insects from all over the world.

Bella makes a magical moth trap, spies a butterfly laying an egg, and shows her friends how to hop like a grasshopper! Follow Bella as she shares her love of bugs --discover how many bugs might be lurking in a pond, see how awesome ants are, and be amazed by mighty stag beetles.

With an engaging and lively narrative from Jess French and fun and warm illustrations from Duncan Beedie, this book will help ignite a love and appreciation for nature, right on our doorsteps.

The Nature Heroes series focuses on a group of friends who are passionate about nature and the great outdoors. Each book features a different child who has a favorite topic that they are fascinated by: Billy Loves Birds , Bella Loves Bugs , Ava Loves Animals , and Pedro Loves the Planet !

Playful text and funny relatable illustrations makes this an accessible series, which provides an entertaining introduction to the natural world .
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Once readers see insects through Bella's bug-loving eyes, they'll catch her exuberant enthusiasm. With a pack full of collecting supplies, Bella sets off, meeting up with two trusty friends--Billy, a bird enthusiast, and Pedro, a budding gardener--along the way. She examines ants and bees, "bouncing bugs" like grasshoppers, "beautiful butterflies," and "brilliant beetles." She makes observations, sets catch-and-release traps (with instructions for the reader to do the same), and discusses insect behavior and features with her friends. The art and the text blend together seamlessly, and the pages are varied and busy while still feeling cohesive. Cartoon-style panels, labeled diagrams (an ants' nest, butterfly metamorphosis, bug charts), whimsical dialogue, and even sound effects ("Swoosh!" "Hop!") combine to engaging effect. A grouchy spider also adds to the fun by interjecting humorous disgruntled comments. By the end of this book, insect lovers and skeptics alike will come to love or at least appreciate Bella--and her bugs, too! A champion entry in the Nature Heroes series (2 titles)."
