The Bugs in a Box series is great--my kids have enjoyed them for years and now my two-year-old loves them. However, I have found his more recent ventures to lack the quality and spark of his original works: Bugs In Boxes, More Bugs In Boxes, How Many Bugs in a Box, etc. While I would still recommend this book, David A. Carter's original pop-ups were more complex, more clever and more sturdy. If you haven't purchased any, I would start with the aforementioned books first.

I love this book - I've ordered several as gifts. I was a little disapointed in the last two I ordered - pieces were missing and/or parts not working. Happily, Amazon was quick to exchange them at no extra cost to me. I love all of David Carter's pop-up books and have ordered many of them!

Colorful book. Only problem I have with it is that the pop-ups aren't all self-retracting (i.e. there is an envelope that requires folding back and it has birthday candles inside that are each a separate piece and not attached to the book). This leaves lots of room for misplaced items and books folded back onto the pop-up incorrectly. Just not as user-friendly as some of Carter's other books. Builder Bugs, School Bugs and Bugs That GO! were all super hits with our kids and I would definitely recommend those over this one.

My husband came home last Christmas with "Winter Bugs" for our then 2mo son. We were like, what the heck is a winter bug? But the book was really cute and our son seemed to enjoy us reading it to him. I was surfing Amazon recently and stumbled across some other bug pop-up books by David Carter. Easter is coming up so I bought "Easter Bugs" for his basket. I also bought "Bedtime Bugs" because it looked cute. Lastly, my son is an October baby, so I bought "Halloween Bugs" and "Birthday Bugs." We're going to have a house full of bugs! Each book is adorable. I'm a little concerned about the delicacy of the designs, since they are so intricate, but I'm hoping we can teach him to be careful as we read them together. Recommended for your home library.

Bought this for my 4 year old grandson. He loved it! The pop up pages are sturdy and hold up to little hands.
The colors are bright and both my 4 year old and his 6 year old brother love the bugs!!!

This book is very cute and was enjoyed by my grandchildren. Not your average pop-up book,this book has lots of detail. Fragile for the young child, so enjoy the book WITH your child. Planning on buying more of these delightful David Carter books

A very cute book full of fun & surprises. Not for the very young because it has lots of little pieces but the pop-ups are very cool. My favorites were the wearable birthday hat & the pop-up birthday cake with candles to place in it. Lots of fun stuff.
