Format: Board book
I bought this book for my son for his 4th birthday (he helped pick it out) and it is one of his favorite books. He has had it less than 6 months and can tell you what every bug is and something about it. If you have a bug lover its a great book.

This book was fantastic. It had a great deal of interesting information about 26 different bugs. The text was still simple enough for children of all ages to enjoy. My preschoolers loved it!

Not what you'd think - MUCH more interesting! June 20 2009
By L. Gildart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I saw this title on my son's summer reading list last year, I braced myself for a syrupy simple ABC book with bugs in it. B. BEE! BUZZZZ! This is so much better than that. For one thing, the illustrations are finely rendered, making each bug beautiful and fascinating and each page worth lingering over. For another, the text is both simple enough for a young reader to parse on his own and interesting enough to engage an adult reading aloud.

More importantly, it actually teaches something about each of the bugs discussed. This book is on my gift list for all of the young children in my life. It's a lovely alphabet book that will grow with the child.

Delightful book July 8 2008
By I. Polt-Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This beautifully illustrated book introduces young children to the wonderful world of insects. I read it to my girls from a very young age and at age two they could identify pretty much every insect in there. They enjoy looking for bugs in their garden too. Children will enjoy the short descriptive text. The illustrations really make this book a delight.

Beautifully Illustrated Board Book Aug. 7 2009
By delicateflower152 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
"The Icky Bug Alphabet Book" is a beautifully illustrated, well written work for all ages. I was particularly pleased to find it in board book form since my grandson is just a toddler. Unlike most children's board books, the illustrations in this one are very detailed and beautifully done. They are realistic, instead of being stylized or shown as simple line drawings. The text is interesting and does not "talk down" to the reader or listener; parents will enjoy reading this as much as children will enjoy being read to. Further, the information in the book is instructive, and children will learn not only to identify different insects, but will also learn information about each one.

If you want to go beyond the fun books which are so important when you are trying to impart a love of reading to your child, I definitely recommend this book.
