Busy Builders was selected for the 2013 Cook Prize honoring the best science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) picture book published for children aged eight to ten.

The tiny creatures in this book are amazing builders. Can you guess which builder makes separate chambers for nurseries and even trash? Or which insect's home looks like cotton candy? Or what kind of insect has ears on its knees? Busy Builders features eight insects, one spider, and an inside look at the unique structures they each build. Roxie Munro's striking art, drawn in India ink and colored ink, brings these remarkable feats of engineering into full focus. A glossary and resources to learn more are included. If you were a bug, what kind of home would you build?

The author of Busy Builders has donated this book to the Worldreader program

About the Author:

Roxie Munro has written and illustrated more than thirty books for children, in addition to illustrating books by other authors. Her art has been exhibited nationally, including in the Original Art Exhibit at the Society of Illustrators in New York City. Roxie’s books have received such honors as New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book of the Year, Time Magazine Best Children’s Book of the Year, and Smithsonian Magazine Notable Book for Children, among many others. Her book EcoMazes: 12 Earth Adventures was recently named a Smithsonian Magazine Best Science Book for Children and received a starred review in School Library Journal. She lives in New York City.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Many-legged home-builders are rendered in remarkable artwork. Eight habitat-building insects plus one spider are introduced. Each receives a close-up two-page look at the animal alone followed by a full-spread painting of the web, hive or mound in which it lives, here accompanied by a description of its hunting, nesting and food-storage habits. For most of the insects, the habitat provides a way to store its eggs and hatch and nurture larvae; the spider uses its web to capture its food. The full-color ink illustrations work well to give a sense of the creature’s body structure as well as of the general look of the hive or nest for each. The individual portraits are terrifically impressive, while the handsome habitat paintings show very well from a slight distance, making this a good choice for reading aloud to a group. Munro includes within each habitat drawing a close-up or cutaway interior look at a piece of the structure. The information presented is clear and unadorned, densely packed in a trim, compact type against the background of the habitat paintings. More information appears on the insect-focused introductory page directly opposite the title-page verso, and a glossary of “Bug Words” along with a brief list of resources is included on the last page. Enticing as an introduction to insects and spiders. (Nonfiction. 4-9) -Kirkus Reviews, March 2012
