Cockroaches aren’t picky eaters. They’ll eat soap, paper, glue, plants, dead animals, and even paint. With such wide-ranging appetites, it’s no wonder these pesky insects have been around since before the time of the dinosaurs. These are just some of the surprising facts children will discover as they explore the fascinating world of these hungry creatures. Large, eye-popping photos and clear, grade-appropriate text will engage emergent readers as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of this unique invertebrate. Hungry Cockroachesis part of Bearport’s No Backbone! The World of Invertebrates series.
