Bridget Heos is the author of twelve YA nonfiction books for Rosen Publishing, on topics ranging from the alkaline earth metals to Lady Gaga. Her three picture books about insect larvae, marsupial joeys, and alligator babies (also nonfiction) will be released by Lerner Publishing beginning in early 2011.

She lives in Waldo with her husband and three sons.
Bridget Heos is booking school and library visits for 2011. She would love to schedule a fun, informative author visit for your group of kids.
Baby Bugs! In 2011, Bridget is presenting “Metamorphosis: It’s Not Just for Butterflies Anymore.” Most kids learn about butterfly metamorphosis, which makes sense. Caterpillars are cute. But lets not forget the not-so-cute baby bugs that go through metamorphosis, too, such as flies, ants, and beetles. Your kids will learn about these wierd and funny insect babies and will be treated to a larvae petting zoo.
This is a great supplement to class butterfly units or a fun science enrichment program for a school or library. It can be a stand-alone presentation or part of an author’s day. For dates and rates, contact Bridget at authorbheos-at-gmail.com.
Audience: Preschool-Eighth Grade
