What did you like about the book?  This title introduces young children to a variety of bugs.  The text begins, “Hello bugs! What do you do?”  What follows are 12 close up illustrations of common insects accompanied by a descriptive verb.  Bees “buzz,” butterflies “flutter,”  ants “scurry,” and spiders “spin.”  The soft, bright pastel renderings give detail to each insect.  Children may be inspired to act out the simple verbs for each insect.  A nice book for little backyard gardeners.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  The insects are not named, but most will be familiar to adults.

To whom would you recommend this book?  This is a fun one to share with children who are curious about bugs.

Who should buy this book?  Public libraries

Where would you shelve it? Board Book

Should we (librarians/readers) put this at the top of our “to read” piles?  No
