Jack's Insects

As many may already know we do our best to have a Charlotte Mason inspired home school.   We have started reading one of the books that would have been used in one of her schools.  It is called Jack's Insects by Edmund Selous originally published in 1910.  Here is a picture of the text:

The story begins with a young boy who dreams to be an entomologist.  He is showing his younger sister his new book.  They fall asleep and are suddenly in the book.  If you decide to read this book,  I have listed some of the characters they meet and learn about on their journey.
