    A number of insect species do not feed on living plants but act as scavengers. Some of these species live on decaying vegetable matter and others on dung or the carcasses of animals. The activities of the scavenger insects hasten the decomposition of all kinds of dead organic material. Certain insects also exhibit predation or parasitism.   Each scene is also accompanied by the sounds of the insects shown on the pages, so kids can listen for everything from the hum of a bee to the leap of a flea. The book also features keys describing each insect, so curious children (and their caregivers) can learn more about the featured bugs.
