Lice are some of the world's peskiest insects! This book's easy-to-read text and larger-than-life photos bring the louse's world to life, introducing readers to a louse's diet, habitat, and methods of defense. Diagrams help readers investigate the concept of metamorphosis and identify body parts, from the louse's chewing or sucking mouthparts to its large abdomen. The digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems are also described. A step-by-step approach to scientific classification helps place lice within the order Phthiraptera. Readers are also encouraged to consider how lice impact our daily lives, including prevention and treatment. From head lice to body lice or crab lice, young entomologists will enjoy uncovering the lives of these troublesome creatures. Informative sidebars and Bug Bytes aim to peak readers' interest, while bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index enhance readability. Checkerboard is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
