It is Midsummer. Bumblebees, Flies and Butterflies dance excitedly to the Cicada’s rhythm. Snails, Millipedes and Dung Beetles come out of hiding to join in. Even Mr and Mrs ying Mantis are getting along for once! But the dreaded Bug Squad are lurking behind a tree, armed with fly swatters, nets and insecticide! How are these brave little creatures to defend themselves?
Minibeasts play a important role in our world. Sadly, many are endangered. It is vital therefore that children are encouraged to appreciate them, and what better way than with a song, dance, fun facts and pictures!
