by Dawn Cusick

From blowing bubbles to spraying acid, the world's insects do amazing things with this under-appreciated part of their anatomy. Discover the wild and weird ways insects use their butts to avoid predators. Spittlebugs blow bubbles from their butts and hide under them, while some caterpillars shoot their poop far from their bodies to throw poop-searching wasps off their trail. Ants and beetles spray acid from their butts into the faces of predators, while some caterpillars and larvae build hide-outs with their poop to keep predators away.

Love us some bug butts! My daughter loved this book so much we kept borrowing it from our library, so I'm happy to find one to buy. Has interesting information about different things that different bug butts can do, i.e. spray acid, produce bubbles, explode, and breath through their butts. funny and educational at the same time.
I bought this book for my grandson who was turning five. He and I both loved it. It was gross in a good way, detailed, accurate and funny too. There is information that boys love and it gives grandma some details that I never knew.
My friend mentioned that this book had won the Animal Behavior Society's Outstanding Children's Book Award for 2010. I was intrigued by the title and purchased a copy, intending to give it to a colleague's kids. I might have to buy them another copy though as this book is so charming, so quirky that it's become a bit of a conversation piece in our home. Fascinating facts, very well presented. Surprising what I've learned from a kids' book.
If you have a boy in the 3 to 7-year-old range, chances are you hear a lot of talk about butts and poop: it's a developmental stage, right? Bug Butts is a way to harness kids' natural curiosity about insects with their fascination with butts! Who knew so many insects had such fascinating hind quarters that can blast, breathe and bubble? Cusick explains the science of bug butts in easy-to-understand terms, with one fascinating bug after another. The illustrations are colorful and engaging. Kids will remember what they learn about bug butts and recite it back to their friends!
This book is so much fun. The examples are almost are almost too amazing to believe, and both kids (5 and 8) quietly study the illustrations for hours.

My brother thinks it should have been called Bug Bottoms, instead, because he doesn't let his kids say the word "butt," but I disagree -- it's good for a giggle and makes the kids want to read.
I got this book for my nephews and placed it on the kitchen table before wrapping it to send it off to them. Every member of my family (all over age 30) picked it up as they came in, paged through it, and exclaimed, "This is so cool!" And it is. The illustrations are wonderful and the text just couldn't be better -- engaging, straightforward and fun. Highly recommended!
The cover of this book caught my eye immediately. Great title, great subject, PERFECT for boys--Santa should leave one at every house! Besides the fun title and colorful pictures, the information is fascinating. The whole family will end up reading this one!
This is an excellent non-fiction children's book!! As a teacher and a mom, I am constantly looking for those books that will instill "a love for reading" in our children. This selection accomplished that with ease. Kids will want to read it over and over!!!!
