About the Author

Amy Imbody writes and speaks for kids, to kids, and about kids. As a founder of the Redemptive Education model, and Head of Lorien Wood School in Vienna, VA, she has lots of opportunities to hobnob with children and the people who love them! Snug as a Bug won the International Reading Association's "Children's Choice Award" in 2002. It has appeared in full picture book format, Kindle format, and two "I Can Read" formats, including the bilingual Snug as a Bug/Arropadito y a gusto "I Can Read/ Yo se leer" format. As an author/educator, Amy has also created K-3 lesson plans for use by parents and teachers. Amy does most of her writing from her porch at Cedarstone on the top of a mountain. Oscar and Jericho (her two pussycats) lend her their ears, whiskers, tails and purrs, while the bears walk by and the woodpeckers laugh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get "Snug" with your little one! October 1, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is a delightful read when you are getting your little one "snug"-gled in for the night! Add a few stuffed animals in with your reading time and you'll enjoy the response from your children. My kids love to be tucked in with their bears, fish, and other beanies that happen to be in this story! Unlike some of the other bedtime books - I still enjoy it after the 50th time. One word of warning: you may find yourself scouring the shelves of local stuffed animal stores for all of the critters that you find in the story line! Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars review of the kindle version March 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is such a wonderful story, I give that 5 stars!!!!
Though I have never seen the actual book but I have to imagine that it is a more pleasant experience. My kids will understand the story but the illustrations are a bit hard to see and the text does not always match the illustration.

Love, Love this story! I think I will find it on paper.

Format:Hardcover
Author Amy Imbody and artist Mike Gordon successfully collaborate to combine clear word pictures and humorous illustrations in Snug As A Bug?, a 24-page picturebook story about a child who decides not to sleep in his own bed. His mother narrates some of the different ways animals sleep and why it's best for God's child to sleep "snug as a bug" in their own bed. An ideal and very highly recommended bedtime book for ages 4 to 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have read it so much I dont need to look at the book December 9, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My first son received a copy of this from his preschool years ago, If I recall the author came to read it at the school. He's too old for mom to read to him now, but this was one of his favorites when I did. We read it so many times that we made a game out of whether I could read it without looking at the book! (I did) This book was our 'last book of the night' and I still recall tucking him in with a "kiss and a hug" each night.
Delightful, wonderful book, that was just fun to read.
Highly recommend :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Christian January 2, 2013
By Dakota
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an ok young children's book but it was a surprise to discover that the end is very explicitly Christian. That's the sort of thing I would like to learn about in the book description. Given the overall quality of the book and that unexpected turn at the end, I wish I could get my money back. Not what I am looking for from the I Can Read series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whimsical and fun
Whimsical and fun; it's a nice read for a beginning reader. Bedtime is a natural time to read to children, or have them read, so it's a perfect bedtime book about bedtime.
