Children enjoy rhymes about all sorts of things and insects are no exception. Remember:

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly,
I don't know why she swallowed a fly,
Perhaps she'll die.

Do you remember any other children's rhymes about insects?

Incy Wincy Spider
The old woman who swallowed a fly
Shoo fly don't bother me
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly on his nose

Yes, the old lady who swallowed a fly was the one I thought of. Also, little peter rabbit and the fly upon his nose.
I have an early memory of sitting in a ring at kindergarten reciting Little Miss Muffett but the one I remember all the way through is Eency Weency Spider and I have taught it to many a young child since. There were a lot of ladybirds around when I was growing up and we used to put them on our hands and recite Ladybird, Ladybird fly away home.
Goodness, I know lots! Incy wincy spider, Little Miss Muffett, There was an old lady, Ladybird ladybird fly away home, Ladybird she creeps along, There's a worm at the bottom of the garden, The ants go marching two by two..... I'm sure there are more but those are the first to leap to mind :)
Also Ladybird, Ladybird fly away, Ladybird, Ladybird come again another day
The ants go marching! Hurrah hurrah!

Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home
Your house is on fire
And your children all gone

Always thought that was a bit sad!

There is also a great Scottish poem about Robert the Bruce and a spider which I learned as a child back home in Scotland.
