Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Raising the flaps on each spread of this lift-up counting book reveals fanciful insects in increasing numbers, from "one tough bug" with barbells, to "seven space bugs" surrounded by stars and planets, to "ten saw bugs," whose snouts indeed consist of saws. Startlingly bright illustrations and elaborate paper engineering should attract young children's attention. However, the cleverness to the made-up insects varies widely; groups such as "three pretty bugs" and "nine very long-necked bugs" seem rather tame in contrast to the rest. Ages 3-6.

From the Publisher

All kinds of boxes full of all kinds of bugs make a book full of fun and surprises! Inside each bright box are bugs to count from one to ten. Young children will laugh and learn as they lift open the boxes and find colorful, comical bugs that pop out, run, eat-and even swim!

How Many Bugs in a Box? will keep youngsters counting over and over again.

Really cute and fun book for the very young!
Children love this book because of the pictures, colors, good story, and the pop-up action pieces.
A good reader can easily embellish the story to make it more fun! My kids loved this book when they were very young, now (4 and 5 years old) they will read it for fun and to practice their independent reading.
The book has:
......Colorful pictures
......Pop-up action pieces
......Short sentences
......Short, easy words
......Cute Story
Get this book!

I have read this book to all three of my grandchild hundreds of times. They never seem to tire of it and it is the first book out of many in our little library that they pick out to read. My oldest granddaugter (age 2) runs and gets this book as soon as she gets in the house. Even the most anxious child will set through this book. It is wonderful.

When my son was about 1, he fell in love with this book. He would bring it to everyone and make them read it over and over. His father and I have the book memorized! This is a fun book to read - really important when you have to read it again and again and again and again and again...

Without a doubt, my 20-month old's favorite. The playful bugs have sparked his interest not only in 'flap' books, but all books in general. Thanks to David Carter for creating a fresh, fun, and creative book to kindle young minds.

A co-worker handed down a used copy of this book to my 2-year-old daughter. It immediately became her favorite, and we have read this book every night (at least once per night, sometimes 3-4 times) for the last 3 months. She loves working the flaps, and it has held up very well to her 2-year-old hands. She practices counting the bugs on each page and will predict which bugs are in the box before we open it. She thinks the pages are funny --- especially the "Four fast fleas" which disappear when you open the box and the "Ten saw bugs" that have to be kept locked in their box least they get out. She has enjoyed this book so much we'll be buying other David Carter pop-ups for Christmas.

This book has been a favorite of my son since he was 6 months old. He is now 16 months and enjoys looking through the book by himself. The pop-up features really get and keep his attention and have made him much more interested in books in general.

My 9 month old son prefers David A. Carter books out of all of the other books. He will leave his toys, crawl over to his book area and specifically pick out the Carter Bug books! Those are the only ones he wants to listen to.

Format: Hardcover
My 16 month old son has only recently begun to sit still for books, but this was the first one that he paid rapt attention to, beginning to end. He brings it over for me to read it to him frequently. He has learned which way to pull the different flaps and tabs (they are different on different pages). Perhaps it's not the sturdiest of books, but for amount of pulling and yanking it has had, it has lasted far better than several other pop-up type books we have. We read it all the time, and he still hasn't tired of it. I will be getting him some others in the "bugs" series (he loves Chanukah Bugs, too), since they hold his attention so well! The bugs are cute, also.
