Looking for some good books to read-aloud for a bug/insect theme?? Thanks!
How Many Bugs in a Box?
Not factual, but very cute.
The Bugliest Bug, Eric Carle books, Inch by Inch
I'd suggest cultivating a relationship with your local public children's librarian, who can be a great resource to you for these sorts of questions. Children's librarians generally have a deep knowledge of their collections.

Books by Judy Allen: Are You a Butterfly? Are You a Ladybug?, Are you a Bee? Are You an Ant? Simple but educational text, nice pictures. Look at them on Amazon.
Favorite insect book and simple enough for littles: http://www.amazon.com/Bugs-Insects-Lets-Read-And-Find-Out-Science/dp/0060285680
Another great one: http://www.amazon.com/Bumblebee-Que...r_1_12?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1335399697&sr=1-12
Diary of a Worm. Diary of a Spider. I also have a few audobon field guides for my children to peruse. I'm sure there are more- but my brain is fried.
