An energetic ode to insects in a style that's Dr. Seuss meets Hieronymus Bosch... The madcap cartoons create an atmosphere that feels almost interplanetary, playing up the alien nature (and the diversity) of the insect world.
With bouncing rhyme and illustrations that demand multiple viewings, Bugs Galore is a rollicking celebration of all things creepy-crawly. This highly successful collaboration shows how well text and artwork can add up to something more... The main action is always clear and bold, but each spread features dozens of bugs with individual details, expressions, and actions. Kids will love identifying the little creatures specified in the text and discovering other stories through the pictures.

* One - is the text. It's short and cute, but reading it out loud it feels very simplistic.
* Two - are the bugs themselves. Only a few look like real bugs, and the rest are made up. So the learning value is kind of low. (But I do like to make up funny names for the bugs when my son asks).
The length of the book is ideal. It's not too long, but not too short, and it makes a good before-bed book. Overall it's fun and cute, and I would recommend it for kids under 4 who like bugs. I think older than 4 might find the text too simple.
