Amazon.com Review

David A. Carter, paper engineer extraordinaire, is back with more pop-up bugs! Fans of The 12 Bugs of Christmas, Alpha Bugs, Love Bugs, and the other silly pop-ups in Carter's insect series, will be delighted at the new surprises in store with Easter Bugs. "Spring has sprung and left winter behind. How many Easter Bugs can you find?" Who's in the dip-dyed rainbow egg? How about the egg with baby blue dots? The jeweled egg? The purple peekaboo egg? Inside each brightly decorated egg waits a new bug, unlike any you'll ever see in nature (unless genetic engineering goes awry). There's the fluffy yellow Chick-Chick Bug, with touchable fleecy soft fur. And some shiny silver Raindrop Bugs. There's even a bucktoothed Bunny Bug with turquoise spots. For a spectacular finale, Carter constructs a basket full of every insect depicted. Kids will have a grand old time guessing what kind of creepy-crawly critter lies behind each egg. Here's one delicious Easter treat that won't cause cavities! (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

Carter (The 12 Bugs of Christmas) gussies up his tried-and-true format in this pert pop-up, this time concealing his whimsical "bugs" behind Easter egg-shaped flaps. "Who's in the ruby red speckled egg?" asks the text on the first spread; pull down the flap of the speckled egg on the facing page and out slides a tulip-shaped "magenta Blooming Bug" behind three tall pop-up leaves. Carter's creations reflect spring: readers can stroke a fluffy yellow "Chick-Chick Bug" or admire the foil overlays on "shiny silver Raindrop Bugs." On the last spread, all the bugs appear in an elaborate pop-up basket of woven cardstock. The small, fits-in-a-basket size contributes to the considerable gift appeal. Ages 2-5.

My little boy is 10 months now, and ever since he got this book (when he was 6 months) he loves it. I mean L-O-V-E-S I-T !!! As soon as I pull it out he shakes with excitement. He LOVES flipping the easter eggs to discover the bugs underneath, and the last page is especially adorable, with all the bugs in a single easter basket. What an awesome concept. I have had to make some repairs with tape because it is hard to teach a 10 month old to be gentle ! ha ha. But it is SO worth it. This book is HIGHLY recommended even for little babies.

Different colored eggs on each page lift up to reveal the bugs in different costumes but the last page made me gasp as a beautiful Easter basket pops up by itself.Little bugs dangle from the handleof the basket filled with more delightful bugs. the child is then asked how many bugs he or she`found which encourages more careful observation of each page. This book is a real winner and a great bargain for the low price for a new book. Buy it now for next EAster because you will love it as much as your child. A three year old child who loves and respects books can handle this one alone but for the younger child, put it up to be read by an older child or adult. You don't find bargains like this one very often.

We received this book as a gift and both my 15 month old and four and a half year old loved it. It has very colorful pop outs,with a nice surprise at the end. The easter bunny must get this one.

I have a few of the Matthew Van Fleet books and my 18 month old loves them. I purchased this for a change of pace but it is very "tender". My son can't pull the tabs yet as he would pull them off. He can't even touch the pages or they will get ruined. This will be a fun book when he gets older though.

This is a cute book, but it's extremely fragile....Parts of mine were ripped when I received it - would never have made it through a week with my nephew. Concept a bit young for older kids, but too delicate for younger - not sure what the target age would be.....

My boys (now age 5 & 9) ADORE David A. Carter's pop-up books in his "Bug" series and have for years!! We have a rather large collection of them. We haven't found one yet that they didn't enjoy. The artwork is engaging, the pop-up's are creative & the writing is silly & funny!

I probably wouldn't recommend the books for under the age of 3 to read/play with (unless the caregiver is handling the book) as some of the tabs & artwork can be torn if handles roughly. Once the kids have the hang of "touch nicely", these books are great for fun for all!!

Highly recommend!!

What a cute book. I've never seen any of these bug books, but reviews were fabulous so I ordered one for Easter. I'm hooked and now want more! Definitely can't let the 11 month old look at this unsupervised but my 3 year old will get a kick out of it.

My son loves this little pop up book and it makes a great addition to an Easter basket. The only caution is that it would be easy to tear or rip part of this book (as it would be with any pop up book), so it wouldn't be recommended solo-reading for a child who is still rough on their books. Especially the pages with the "raindrop bugs", as they are connected by strings.

The book has some tactile aspects, there are some reflective surfaces, fuzzy spots, and a worm that you can "tug".
