Parenting Magazine "Recommended Series"

Can I be a bug too? If there was ever a children's book that played into every child's life and dreams, it's Robert Stanek's "The Bugville Critters Visit Garden Box Farms." I think just about everyone out there, young and old, will find something amusing and true to life in this delightful children's offering. Dad Bee is taking Buster and his friend Sarah to Garden Box Farms. Before the bugs leave, Buster wonders if he'll be able to see his friend Tim at the farms. Sarah is nervous since its her first time flying, but Buster and his dad help her overcome her fears. At the farms, the bugs have a good time. They learn about growing fruits and vegetables, and they learn lessons about healthy eating. The letters from Buster to the reader are fun additions. It's well-worth investing in this one. Younger kids will surely demand multiple re-readings, and older kids will enjoy discovering the many wonderful extras in the books. -- Brenda McKinney, teacher and parent, May 25, 2007

Ages 3 to 9. Robert Stanek's "The Bugville Critters" stories are highly imaginative tales that are sure to be a hit with children, teachers, librarians, and parents. The stories in the series are an irresistible combination of enchanting critters, fun facts about our natural world, positive life lessons, and America's favorite pastime baseball. Buster is passionate about life, sweets and baseball, and his exuberant outbursts and anecdotes are a delight. The illustrations throughout are as unique and fun as the stories themselves. The 52-page editions of the books start with a 14-page section entitled "Meet Buster Bee and All His Friends," which includes a letter from Buster to readers, and is followed by the 24- to 32-page story. The books end with an 8- to 14-page section that provides additional details about Bugville, the author, and the books in the series. Not to be missed, in the final section, is a second letter from Buster to readers. A bit pricey at $19.95 but these beautifully-produced and beautifully-written books are nearly twice as long as their 24- and 32-page counterparts. -- Amy Baker, teacher and parent, May 23, 2007
