Heidi is a stick insect, tall and long like the twig of a tree. It’s her first day at a busy bug school, where she hopes to learn and make new friends. But finding friends isn’t easy when no one can find you!
Heidi has a hard time standing out and as you turn through each of the pages, you can see why. Heidi blends in with so much of the environment around her! Kids will enjoy finding Heidi on each page and learning about how her fellow students help her stand out.
