Creep and Flutter

We’ve been fans of the Jim Arnosky books ever since we discovered the last year.  I just added our fourth book to the collection, Creep and Flutter is really the perfect book for our family of bug hunters.

Creep and Flutter

Published through Sterling Books and distributed in the UK by GMC Distribution, this paperback book is a wealth of information about all manner of mini beasts. From dragonflies and butterflies through to wasps, crickets and spiders we are treated to Jim Arnosky’s lovely illustrations as Creep and Flutter brings these wonderful little creatures to life.

Creep and Flutter

There are wonderful fold out pages included within this book, and of course Monkey and I are both drawn to the butterflies and moths.  Guru Gramps would be pleased!

Creep and Flutter

We are big fans of this series, the facts are written in a way that makes them both interesting for children as well as easy for them to understand.  The illustrations just bring the creatures to life.

Creep and Flutter

For £5.99 I think this book is a bargain, and its found a good home on our book shelf.  I can thoroughly recommend Creep and Flutter, along with Jim Arnosky’s other titles for any child interested in the natural world.  I’ve included my Amazon affiliate link below for your information.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Beauty in Flight. As they are so beautiful to see in flight, as can see full wingspan with beautiful colours and patterns.

  2. holly feather, after my daughter and her new found thought that feathers and butterflies are a gift from guardian angels

  3. Purple Shadow (it’d have to be purple for this to work!) Because butterfly’s are silent and fragile and when you chase them – well, it’s like chasing shadows!

  4. I would call it Heaven Kisses, as they are so mysterious and fill so many people of hope of re-emerging and blossoming

  5. big dave. big dave the butterfly.

    nothing wrong with calling him dave – even has a tv channel named dave.

  6. I would call it Sunlight Rocket after my two Papillons (Butterfly Dogs!) – one is Solei and the other Elton but nicknamed Rocket Man 🙂

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
