[this is something my older son might write]
Insects. Insects. So many insects.
Ants scurrying around- fetching, carrying, always at work.
Butterflies fluttering from plant to plant– bright wings so attractive to a child’s mind.
Ladybugs with spots that you can count- sometimes you call them ladybirds.
Bees that buzz as they fly around- they make honey, but stay far away as they sting.
Mosquitos that spread diseases when they bite- you can swot them as much as you want.
Spiders with eight legs and as many eyes– they spin webs, but you never see then do so. But spiders don’t count- they are not insects after all.
