Ben and Simon got involved to help me create a Diary Of A Mosquito.
Some of my kids favorite picture books are the Diary Of A Worm, Diary Of A Fly and Diary Of A Spider.
These books are hysterical takes on what life is like from the perspective of these small creatures. Fly tries to teach Worm to fly and Worm tries to teach Fly to dig in the ground. Fly’s father isn’t sure Fly should play at Spider’s house, because of the webs. Funny stuff.
So, in honor of World Malaria Day, here is our silly spin off on the Diary Of books:
Fish eat mosquitoes. Apparently, really small fish.
Mosquitoes are actually considered to be the most dangerous animals in the world, because more deaths are associated with mosquitoes than any other living thing. Crazytown.
A group of mosquitoes got attacked by a frog at the pond.
Ben decided that mosquitoes, bees and wasps are all bullies in the bug world. Fights initiated by bullies are apparently as common in the bug world as they are in the human world.
Simon says this is the back cover of the book. I think it is Mosquito’s house.
According to the Gates Foundation, eradicating Malaria is totally withing the realm of possibility. That’s kind of amazing.
