Bugged: How Insects Changed History.

Bugged: How Insects Changed History. by. Sarah Albee (Author).

Sarah Albee has done it again. As in her previous book, Poop Happened!, she ingeniously takes us on a romp through the centuries, this time in the company of insects. Fascinating and wonderfully written, my nine-year-old nephew and I loved reading how these tiny terrors shaped history (even if we were creeped out a few times, we were creeped out in an interesting way)!

Jun 05, 2016 Heidi rated it it was amazing. Sarah Albee provides a thorough exploration of insects, their activities, abilities, and atrocities, their interactions with humans, and the profound historical significance these interactions have had. This story is infested with intriguing facts and events which makes it the greatest type of nonfiction book: the kind that changes your outlook on the world and changes you, yourself.

This is perfect for 9 year olds who delight in grossing out either their mom or younger sisters - which is why I bought it. The layout of the book is busy with all kinds of sidebars and footnotes and warnings not to read this thing or that because it might be disturbing. Of course what 9 year old worth their shorts is going to resist that kind of thing? I was disappointed that the book was not in color. Everything is done is a purple text and all the illustrations are that same purple. That's just me though. The 9 year old is hoping I'll buy the companion book, "Pooped" next.
Interesting, funny, and deliciously gross, this book is a bug’s eye view of human history. I especially love the section titles like “Evil Weevil,” “Of Lice and Men,” and “Global Swarming.” What a great way to give kids a healthy dose of world history with some buggy facts on top. I can see this being a big hit with kids who like to be icked-out (i.e. boys).
My grandson loved the book- was right at his level to understand - and for me - didn't talk down. Interesting book - to find out how the bugs affected people made my skin feel like I had creepy crawlies on me, lol. All in all, a very good book.
Bought as a gift for my grandson, who loves all creatures big and small. He loves this book.
You'll want to pepper your lectures or group work with these gems. The information herein is especially good for multidisciplinary lessons that incorporate history, geography, etc.
My son & I love science! This was a great read for the both of us.
it was gift
