Save the Bookworms! (and the Picture Books They Eat.)

4801 Main St. Kansas City, MO

(In the children's area, of course!)

          From caterpillars to bookworms, larvae can be cute or yucky—but always interesting. And often funny. Come learn about these baby bugs from Bridget Heos, author of the new picture book What to Expect When You’re Expecting Larvae: a Guide for Insect Parents (and Curious Children.) (Lerner/Millbrook, Spring 2011.) Kids will see real larvae, do a bookworm craft, write a picture book review, and be entered to win picture book prizes through Save Everything! (and the Picture Book.)


Also in March, it's...

Live, Laugh, Larvae
