About This Book
Bugs! Bugs! Bugs! I want to see bugs!
Insect-enamored kids who share the narrator's sentiment won't want to miss this creature-filled extravaganza, which pairs a delightful, nonsense rhyme with bold, full-color collage illustrations. Buzzing bees, fuzzy caterpillars, hopping grasshoppers, fluttering butterflies, and curly, roly-poly bugs fairly bounce off the page, and are described in language simple enough for younger children to understand. Older readers looking for more information can cross-reference actual-size illustrations of the insects, and check the "Bug-O-Meter" to find answers to questions about lives and habitats.
The success of this energetic picture book will come as no surprise to fans familiar with Barner's previous effort, Dem Bones, which introduced readers to this author/illustrator's keen appreciation of the icky side of science that kids most enjoy.
