Bella has 16 legs – how do you even walk on 16 legs? Not to worry – Pringle explains how different legs help Bella climb, move, and even help her eat. And eat. And EAT… woolly bears, it turns out, eat a lot. And produce a lot of frass (a cool word for caterpillar poop).
Bella eats all summer long, and then finds a safe place to sleep away the winter. In the spring, wooly bears wake up and start eating. Again.
This is the perfect time to go on a bear hunt – a Woolly Bear Hunt, that is. And if you should happen to capture one, put it in a glass dish and watch how it walks.
This is a perfect book for spring , with bright illustrations and a fun story about a critter just about every kid knows.
It’s STEM Friday! (STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
