'Cool insects' delight kids at Naperville museum
Parents took their tots to see the unusual display of insects that aren't necessarily pests, but are just as large and "almost scary," said Sue Kessler, a floor leader at the museum.
Kids got to go hands-on with the insects, holding a variety of bugs while the creatures crawled from palm to palm.
"He likes me," 3-year-old Abigail Leadaman said while she got a close look at a hissing cockroach.
Kessler said the insect zoo visits the museum at 301 N. Washington St. once a month, bringing the creepy, crawly side of science to life.
