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!

HASH(0x9eda0e88) out of 5 stars Not an "icky" book! July 2 2014
By Junie - Published on Amazon.com

My son is ten now, but when he was turning three and about to start preschool, he hated books and he hated the alphabet. I worried that he would never learn his ABC's (he'd actually yell "NOOO!!!" if I even started to sing the ABC's to him) or develop a love for reading.

One thing my son did love, was bugs. I'd even go so far to say he was obsessed with bugs. I mean, what three year old insists on being an earwig for Halloween? I discovered that my stubborn little boy would happily sit for reading time if the books featured bugs. The more realistic and factual, the better. I was thrilled to discover The Icky Bug Alphabet book, and in no time my son had learned to recognize all of the letters. I also got the Icky Bug Counting Book, and I am completely convinced that these two books were the only reason my kid went to preschool knowing the alphabet and how to count to ten.

In addition, the illustrations are beautiful and the text is both fascinating and humorous. These bugs are anything but icky! I got this book for my sister in law, who is expecting a baby girl later this month. I hope my niece will grow up to think bugs are great, not icky. My son still loves his bugs, by the way!

HASH(0x9eda0e70) out of 5 stars Not what you'd think - MUCH more interesting! June 20 2009
By OneMoreThing - 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.

I would never have bought this book if I had been able to see it in the store. If memory serves me correctly (my toddler never asks to hear this book and I don't suggest it), the letter X says that no one could think of a bug that started with X. U is "unfinished picture." I could have googled bugs starting with various letters and written a better book.
