Ashley Spires has written an absolutely charming children’s book, combining fun facts about bugs with a superhero theme. (Amazon affiliate link) Burt the Beetle Doesn’t Bite is a gorgeous full color graphic novel style picture book, perfect for a book discussing the various superpowers certain bugs have. Burt the Beetle, a June bug, is on a mission to find his own superpower (hint: it isn’t biting) throughout the book, comparing himself to the other insects he comes across. He may not have the same skills as other bugs in the book, but at the end, he finds his own special powers and manages to save the day.
This is a fun book to share with the young book lover in your life.
