Book Description

Feb. 1 1989 Jerry Pallotta's Alphabet Books
For many children, "icky" bugs are endlessly fascinating. This book helps children discover why farmers like the praying mantis, how the water spider breathes underwater, and other intriguing facts about the world of bugs and insects.

Jerry Pallotta's lighthearted text and Ralph Masiello's vivid illustrations make this alphabetic exploration of small animal life both fun and informative.

4.0 out of 5 stars my son loves it! Aug. 4 2002
By lindsay
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

My 5 year old granddaughter loves looking for and learning about bugs. I thought I'd get this book for her. She loved it. It was appropriate for her age. She read it over and over and happily shared it with family and friends.
