An award-winning picture book that will get little ones excited about science.

While building a unique sandcastle, Cora and Manny spot a rather curious insect.
Soon, the little scientists keep a watchful eye on the insect’s movements, while learning about the natural environment along the way.

A great book for STEM education and home-school projects or just curious little ones who love science. Book extras include fun, printable activities related to science learning and research.


A colorful scientific classroom book about the insect discovery on the beach by character of the book, Cora and many, who later research more about the insect and shares the information with their friends in school.

The opening of the book was great with two friends enjoying their day on beach in Portugal where an insect draw their attention and make them curious to know more about it. They didn’t know what it is called so gave it a funny name ’The Beedog’. I won’t tell you which insect it was you can take the hint from the cover.

Both kids did a good research and found out details themselves. I liked their observational and research skill. They used technology in smart way and prepared the series of question answers to share with friends. It gave a good bit of information to readers including the importance of scientific name and interesting facts on the insect and other rare types.

I liked the way author included travel, technology, beach, and learning info in fun way that attracts young readers and teachers to the book. What I loved most about the book was fun activity at the end of the book that will encourage kids to observe surrounding, research, Google things and make a notes on it just like characters in the book. There is also a game, a creativity page for kids who love to draw, questions that kids can answer from the picture book and creative writing prompts. Amazing, right?


It was a fun way to teach kids. Teachers can imitate fun activity from this book and can teach kids about other insects, plants, animals, birds and many more things.

Overall, it was colorful resourceful educational book with fun way of teaching that all kids would love to read and learn. It is best book teachers can have in their classroom.
