9781466913851: Butty and the Mosquito

Butty and the Mosquito is the first in a series aimed at simplifying scientific concepts in biology and related subjects for youngsters. It makes learning about nature an easy task. Butty, a beautiful butterfly is made to assume the human role of learning about animals, plants, and nature in general and imparting such knowledge to children. Because Butty can move about noiselessly, it can perch anywhere without being noticed and is thus able to listen to the "conversation" of animals, plants, and other creations of Mother Nature. In Butty and the Mosquito, Butty brings to readers the story of mosquitoes - their life cycle, their habits, their habitat (where they live) their importance to human beings, and how they can be controlled or eliminated. The book starts as a literature text before going into the biology of mosquitoes. As the young or adult reader progresses, he or she learns about mosquitoes in a more practical way. The method is different from what obtains in a normal biology class. The student absorbs more quickly because of the easy and practical presentation of facts. As much as is possible, simple words are used to aid understanding. However, where simplification would lead to loss of meaning, some more difficult terms are used. It is expected that readers will appreciate the dangers of mosquito bites and that the book will assist in the campaign to rid the world of mosquitoes, and by extension, the diseases they transmit.
