Great baby shower gift.

The black and white contrasts combined with the metallic pops of color really drew her attention.

I'm a pediatric nurse practitioner - We give this book to infants birth to 4-6 months of age in our practice as part of Reach out and Read...their eyes light up when they see the pages! The high contrast black and white images, with the sparkle of color is eye catching, and the text is fun for the adults who are sharing the book with their child. The companion book about animals is also great. I was thrilled to find it to buy for our soon to be born grand baby -

My 4 month old daughter can't take her eyes off the pictures in this book! It's hands down her favorite book because of the black and white pictures with splashes of metallic color. (I would give it a 5 out of 5 if it didn't classify snails and worms as bugs.)

We bought both this book and Wee Gallery Art Cards for our twin daughters. The Art Cards are wonderful, but in the 'high-contrast, simple pictures' category, Hello Bugs wins hands down in our family. Part of the difference is the color accents and part of it is that, well, it's a book and it is easier to read in the same order every time.

It never occurred to us when we bought the book, but two additional things make this book a favorite of our daughters. First, the bugs used in this book show up in many other children's books. In that these are our first kids, we hadn't paid much attention to other children's books, but the reinforcement is wonderful! The other thing that makes this book so great is tied to its simplicity. The words, while by no means profound, lend themselves perfectly to simple, repetitive motions that tie the text and pictures together (for instance, we wiggle them for the caterpillar). In that they both will do the motion we taught them for 'slide glide' (the snail page) when we mention snails, we think they enjoy the book! (oh, and they 'fight' over it, which I suppose is about the best endorsement a children's book can get)

My son loves this book. He is 12 months and he likes to listen and see the simple illustrations. I recommend this book to be part of you infant collection.

Don't get me wrong, my baby likes both books. But this one really captures his attention for some reason. He especially likes gently stroking the page with the dragonfly (since 4 months--he's 8 months now) and when I make the buzzing and zuzzing noises. I liked it so much I gave it as a shower gift recently.

There should be more books like this one. Since he was born, this book (and Hello Animals) has been one of his favorite books. The black and white is fascinating to my little guy!

I ordered this for my 1 month old for Christmas. He definitely seems interested in the pages as it is perfect for his visual abilities at this age. Good quality, cute illustrations and pretty pages due to the use of the foil material. Recommended for all baby libraries!
