Meet Bug Boy, the viral sensation!
A boy’s interest in invertebrates is turning him into a YouTube superstar.
Children often have a fascination for small creatures, and one boy’s passion for insects has turned him into a YouTube sensation in just a few days. Bug Boy’s short, informative videos have a catchy theme tune and loads of interesting information just right for his audience.

Natural abilities

He’s not professionally trained, but he handles himself in front of the camera with winning charm. The amateur naturalist is taken aback at his popularity, too. It’s just three days since his first video went up, and he’s had tens of thousands of clicks. Pretty cool for a kid.

Take a look and see if you agree that Bug Boy deserves to own his own space of the internet:

And here’s his surprise at discovering just how popular he is!

Making movies with your kids

Making videos with your children can be a great way of encouraging them to develop their creativity, personal interests and presentation skills. Talking to an audience, even one concealed behind a camera, can give a child confidence.

The comments section on Bug Boy’s videos is unfortunately rather full of trolls and other rude people, so if you do help your child to create a video and upload it, consider turning off the comments.
