PreS-K—Visually detailed, this solid offering offers brief descriptions of a variety of bugs. Mixed-media illustrations emphasize textures and patterns as the insects creep, inch, and flutter along each page. Various perspectives place the bugs as the dominant focus on the scene as they invade each spread. The crisp, rhyming text perfectly suits this fast-paced read-aloud. "Some bugs STING./Some bugs BITE./Some bugs STINK./And some bugs FIGHT!" The simple sentences emphasize the action and appearance of these creepy crawlies. Bold capitalized words highlight each specific sound and action. The bugs are viewed in a variety of outdoor settings, against a backdrop of striking leaves, thick branches, and on top of bubbling water. A dramatic final spread encourages young naturalists to explore the great outdoors. "So kneel/down close,/LOOK/very hard,/and find/SOME BUGS/in your backyard!" Colorful endpapers provide labeled drawings of dozens of bugs. DiTerlizzi demonstrates that it is a bug's world after all, and what a beautiful world indeed.—Meg Smith, Cumberland County Public Library, Fayetteville, NC
Here’s a bright, breezy picture book spotlighting many varieties of bugs, a word used loosely here to include everything from insects to spiders to scorpions. Although the book opens with a plump cat stepping into the yard, the words and pictures focus on the many small species living there. Each turn of the page takes viewers to a small habitat, where they can observe the bugs in a flower garden, by an old log, or in a little pond. The rhyming text moves along quickly in short phrases: “Some bugs FLUTTER. / Some bugs CRAWL. / Some bugs / curl up in a / BALL.” Offering a roundup of the critters appearing in the book, the final spread shows them again, along with labels such as “STINKBUG,” “BOLL WEEVIL,” and “HUMMINGBIRD HAWK MOTH.” The collage-like mixed-media artwork offers vivid views of the yard and its inhabitants. Fine for reading aloud, this lively picture book encourages kids to look for wildlife in their own backyards. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan
