Description: All children love to collect small animals from their own backyards, gardens, and parks. They usually want to keep them, too! But what happens then? They get stuck in a glass jar with a few leaves and soon die. This series shows children how to do it right. It tells readers the best places to find specific kinds of invertebrates and how to identify them. It then explains in clear detail with helpful diagrams how to set up a vivarium to observe these minipets as they go about their lives. Each book will describe the right types of food for the animals, how they should be overwintered, and how they can be encouraged to reproduce, creating more minipets. For concerned parents and teachers, details about how to release them successfully into the wild will also be included.

Children who wish to collect worm specimens for observation will learn how to do so safely and respectfully in this attractive and straight-forward volume. Instructions on how to find, collect, identify, provide homes for, and feed worms are provided, as well as lessons in their anatomy, defenses against enemies, burrowing skills, movement, reproduction, reactions to hot and cold, and their casts. Author includes information about how useful these creatures are to plant life and, in turn, to human life.
