Children have always have been fascinated by minibeasts. They are intrigued by their behaviour and how they live. Insect hotels are home made places that encourage insects to stay put. This unique book supports the current thinking on Eco schools and adds a new spin to the popular but over-used topic of mini beasts. It underpins much of the current thinking on the importance and added value of enhancing the outside environment for children in all settings. It also supports the need to develop activities that relate to boys' needs.
