Review: Walking Stick (Bug Books) by Monica A. Harris

Describes the physical characteristics, habitat, behavior, and life cycle of the insect called the walking stick.

I love how K is picking these books about insects, we get to learn a bit more about them than what we knew before.
With Walking Stick we got to learn their defense mechanism, how they are born and what the eggs look like and so much more. 
Did you know that the eggs look like plant seeds? Totally didn't know that, makes me want to go out and search on the ground for seeds. 
Did you also know that walking sticks could hurt a tree by eating too many leaves, never would have thought that.
K did a good job reading this book to me and he thought that walking sticks were really cool. The pictures are great to look at and make you really see what a true walking stick looks like. And not all walking sticks are the same color I thought they were either brown or green but no there are different ones.
This book is filled with so much information that it is fun to read and not boring. 
The only reason I gave this book a 4 star rating is because it repeated a part that was already mentioned in the book.


  1. I loved finding walking sticks when I was a kid. They're really interesting creatures.

    1. We have never been able to see one where we live at. Maybe one day. Thank you so much for commenting. K was very surprised that someone actually said something on one of the reviews.
