Eye-Popping 3-D Bugs: Phantogram Bugs You Can Pratically Touch!

This book gets your kids a little closer to the mysterious (and often creepy) world of bugs, teaching then a ton of fascinating insect facts in the process. The included 3-D glasses fit kids’ heads and lift bugs right off the pages. Using a new kind of 3-D photography called phantograms, the buggy images within the book not only show depth, they mimic normal vision and seem almost too close for comfort. Great fun for the not-so-squeamish. (Chronicle Books, $13.59)
