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.
Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.

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.

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.

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!

Bought this many years ago for my sons - they loved it! Now my grandson loves it, but it's not in the best condition. Was thrilled to find it on Amazon, only to be disappointed that it's a mini version, not as sturdy - the flaps and pull tabs could easily rip without a very gentle touch (can barely open 6 hungry frogs box enough to read flap - strings seem too short). It certainly won't stand the test of time like the original.

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.

I happen to love David Carter books and this one does not disappoint! The pop-up ability makes it an interactive book and so makes it a great shared experience for both child and adult. As always, his illustrations are funny, vibrant and so well done. This is also a great way to teach a child to respect a book...we tell my granddaughter to use "nice" hands when exploring...but the card stock makes the pages durable enough that they can take a toddler's handling.

I have bought 8 of these books for my granddaughter. I have absolutely loved them all until this one. Three of the ten pages (pop ups) are in other "bug books" by this author. I am sad that there is a need to repeat pages from other books. There probably would have been more repetitive pages if I had access to all the books. I wish I had bought this one first, and then I would have loved it. What a shame!

This was one of my favorite books as a kid. When my 3 year old son found my beat up old copy at my parents' house, he loved it so much that I had to buy him a copy that actually has all of the flaps! I was so glad to see that it is still in print. My only complaint is that the new book is smaller, which makes some of the boxes a bit more fiddly to operate, but I noticed because I have both copies at hand.
