Book Review of Let’s Peep into the Insect World by a young girl, Daanya Purohit, who writes a blog and intends becoming a naturalist. Katie Bagli has written many books on nature. In each of her books she takes up one element of wildlife, like Mangroves, Bees, Flowers, Insects, etc. and elaborates on them, sharing many fun facts and trivia.
