STORY
The little bug meets many fascinating insect friends on his adventures through the garden. Each one has a wonderful talent: the grasshopper makes music, the ant digs tunnels, the bee makes honey. But what wonderful thing can the little bug do?

FOR PARENTS/TEACHERS
Little ones learn about backyard biodiversity as they meet each enchanting insect character. The simple narrative introduces nature-based vocabulary words, which are narrated aloud when tapped. This app is great for incorporating media-rich learning in the classroom, and complements insect, garden, or nature-focused lessons.
