Insects that Work Together
This work is for ages 4-8. This fact-filled book explains in simple terms how the insects within insect colonies work together to ensure the survival of their colonies. Young readers will be intrigued to discover which insects are social, the different insect castes, and the importance of each caste within a colony. Detailed illustrations and clear, concise text highlight: the roles of workers, drones, and queens; the different types of nests and how nests are constructed; the role of a termite king; how social insects work together to find food; which insects swarm or migrate in groups.
