In his childhood, author Peter Richards would catch spiders and keep them in jars, hidden in the shed from his mother. Every day he would catch flies and other bugs to feed them. One day his mother found them and told him to get rid of them, but he did not. He found a new hiding place: under his bed. “Bugs Bugs Bugs Everywhere There Are Bugs” (published by Xlibris AU) is a book relating to his love for bugs.

Sharing a book that spells his love for bugs, Richards entertains readers with a light read for all who wish to know more about the tiny creature. He describes how they can and do interact with people’s lives, in a way that will appeal to children aged three to eight. It shows and teaches young minds that bugs can be found anywhere and if they do not wish to be scared or surprised by them, they need to look out for them. This is also the book for nature lovers and curios minds out there. It offers a fun-filled learning for young and old alike, allowing them to easily relate to the words and illustrations found throughout the pages.

“It will appeal to readers because the words are simple and the illustrations are colorful, quirky and fun,” Richards says. “Plus the book demonstrates everyday events between people and Bugs all over the world.”
