Reviews - What do our customers think?
What makes the Mexican Jumping Bean Jump?   Feb 8, 2005
I remember holding one of those jumping beans in my hand and wondering if I should take one home, because you never could tell what might escape. This book explains how Mexican jumping beans jump and gives you information on bug zoos and butterfly houses. I prefer the butterfly idea, but there are many fascinating insects. After living in Africa, I think I have seen enough bugs to last a lifetime, but I am still curious about insects like butterflies because they seem friendly and if a butterfly lands on you, you tend to feel rather fortunate to be visited by such a beautiful creature. You can have the beetles, they kept me up at night knocking around the room until I could release them out into the night.


Go Buggy - This section takes up over half of the book and is a guide to insect zoos and butterfly houses organized according to states. In Washington you can visit the Tropical Butterfly House and Insect Village at the Pacific Science Center or go to the Bug World and Butterflies & Blooms at Woodland Park Zoo.

Admission prices, hours and detailed information is given for each location.

At the Butterflies in Flight section you enter a kaleidoscope of blooms bursting in 3,900 square feet of an indoor landscape framed by two greenhouse structures. Fluttering around the vibrant plant blossoms are about 1,000 flying flowers representing at least 15 North American butterfly and moth species. ~ info on Woodland Park Zoo

Bugged out - A swarm of bug festivals organized by the months of the year. In November it would be fun to be in San Jose, CA where they release hundreds of Monarch butterflies.

Bug Bytes - A web of bug cams and insect sites where you can watch ants at work in ant farms or research the latest buggy recipes or send a buggy e-mail card. You can order silk worms and those are fun to watch. I had a box of them as a child and used to feed them mulberry leaves from a tree down the street. I seem to remember leaving them there, on the tree. I don't think the owners appreciated it, but as a child, I had no idea what would happen. I laugh now at my innocence. It was fun to watch the silkworms munch away at the leaves and then spin their cocoons. Some of the stores provide seeds for growing plants butterflies love. There is a list of recommended reading although I'll skip the cookbooks.

Bug Bites - A guide to state insects and pet bugs. It was interesting to find out that the Green Darner Dragonfly is the state insect because I rather like dragonflies.

Bug Buzzwords - A glossary of buggy terms.

The author definitely seems to love butterflies and if you are interested in finding a butterfly house near you, then this is a great guide. Troy Corley also provides interesting information about how butterflies smell with their feet or how fast a honey bee flies.
