Insects and entomologists feature in many children's books and novels. Visit the Insectography for a detailed list. Using these resources can be a great way to introduce entomological concepts. Perhaps you are interested in conducting an insect unit in an educational program, or offering a themed book club where novels about mutant insects would encourage animated discussion!

Included below is a list of books and related discussion guides that can be used in your own book clubs or programs.
