Publisher's Summary

Meet the mamas and papas of the insect world in this fresh and funny nonfiction look at how bugs are like us from popular science author and teacher Heather Montgomery. Most insects don't take care of their young, but some do--in surprising ways. Some bugs clean up after their messy little ones, cater to their picky eaters, and yes--hug their baby bugs. A fun and clever look at parenting in the insect world, perfect for backyard scientists and their own moms and dads.

Heather L. Montgomery

Heather L. Montgomery writes books for kids who are wild about animals. Her subject matter ranges from snakes to snail tongues -- the weirder, the wackier the better. With a B.S. in biology and an M.S. in environmental education, Heather's specialty is using yuck-appeal to engage young minds. When she's not writing or working with kids, you can't find her knee-deep in a creek, canoeing a canyon, or up in a tree.
