Here are 10 Bug Books to accompany this month's The Bugs & Butterflies Box!
1 The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle
As your child follows the Grouchy Ladybug on her journey, he/she will learn the important concepts of time, size, and shape, as well as the benefits of friendship and good manners.
2 These Bees Count by Alison Formento
How do bees count? The bees at the Busy Bee Farm buzz through the sky as one big swarm, fly over two waving dandelions, and find three wild strawberries dripping with tasty nectar… As the children in Mr. Tate’s class listen, they learn how bees work to produce honey and make food and flowers grow. Bees count―they’re important to us all.
3 Spider on the Floor by Raffi
Arachnophobes, beware: there’s a spider on the floor! A perfect silly song sure to delight and entertain toddlers everywhere, Raffi’s latest board book is a welcome addition to the series. True Kelley’s irresistible artwork is the perfect showcase for the busy spider who climbs up an old woman, and along the way, manages to ensnare lots of critters in its web, including a family dog, a snake, an alligator, a skunk, an octopus, an elephant, a moose, and even a dinosaur! Whew!
4 Hey, Little Ant by Phillip and Hannah Hoose
What would you do if the ant you were about to step on looked up and started talking? Would you stop and listen? What if your friends saw you hesitate? That’s what happens in this funny, thought-provoking book. Originally a song by a father-daughter team, this conversation between two creatures, large and small, is bound to inspire important discussions. It might even answer that classic childhood question: To squish or not to squish?
5 Waiting for Wings by Lois Ehlert
Every spring, butterflies emerge and dazzle the world with their vibrant beauty. But where do butterflies come from? How are they born? What do they eat--and how? With a simple, rhyming text and glorious color-drenched collage, Lois Ehlert provides clear answers to these and other questions as she follows the life cycle of four common butterflies, from their beginnings as tiny hidden eggs and hungry caterpillars to their transformation into full-grown butterflies. Complete with butterfly and flower facts and identification tips, as well as a guide to planting a butterfly garden, this butterfly book is like no other.
6 See How They Grow Butterfly by DK Publishing
Don't neglect nonfiction when reading aloud to your little learner! Close-up integrated photographs and an informative text follow every stage of a butterfly's development from larva to butterfly.
7 There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly by Simms Taback
Everyone knows the song about the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a bird, and even worse, but who's ever seen what's going on inside the old lady's stomach? With this inventive die-cut artwork, Simms Tabak gives us a rollicking, eye-popping version of the well-loved poem.
8 In the Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming
If you were a fuzzy caterpillar crawling through the tall, tall grass on a sunny afternoon, what would you see?
To find out, just follow the tiny tour guide as he inches his way through the pages of this book. You'll see ants and bees and birds--hip-hopping bunnies too. You'll even hear the sounds some of them make.
9 Shoo Fly! by Iza Trapani
Adapted from the popular nursery rhyme, this book follows an adorable mouse as he tries in vain to escape from a delightfully determined fly.
10 Bug Dance by Stuart Murphy
The bugs in Coach Caterpillar's gym class are learning a new dance. But Centipede can't do it! If he can't learn the directions left, right, forward and backward, this class will be one big FLOP!
