Silly book about bugs. Uses good descriptive words and repitious. Recommend to early readers and very little ones like my toddler. Written by Marget Wise Brown who also wrote "Goodnight Moon"
This is the very first book my son ever read that he had to figure out all by himself. The illustrations keep his interest and the words are not excessively lengthy or numerous, unlike some early readers. Try this with your kid and I believe you will find success.

Step 1 Ready to Read

From the author of Goodnight Moon and illustrator of On Earth comes this little gem, I Like Bugs. It's not all that scientific and the author and illustrator don't really matter all that much. I just think it's silly when they promote anything M.W.B. does based on her best selling book.

Simple rhymes with one sentence per page and plenty of pictoral cues for the beginning reader.
Very good for Kindergarten, young readers. Has color words and words easily referenced by pictures readily available to the reader.

What? The Narrator of this book likes bugs. It shows children that bugs come in all different sizes and colors and they live all around us. They live outside and inside. Some bugs are friendly and some are scary.

So What? This means that children can have fun with bugs. Children will enjoy reading and looking at the illustrations of this book.

Now What? This book will be good for the struggling reader. This book can be in the classroom library during an insect thematic unit. Students will enjoy r...more
I'm continuing to teach my son to read and this book is absolutely fabulous. A few tricky words but a lot of repetition and completely engaging for his level. It's also the perfect length so in the early learning stages he doesn't get too tired. Excellent learning and confidence building book.

This is a perfect book for children to read to learn more about rhyming, colors, descriptive words, and bugs. Great pictures for the students to look at while reading the book.

This is one of the best books for beginning readers. My daughter loved to read this book over and over because it's simple and had a repeating theme. Great book for ages 5 and up.
This is a book about the different colors and shapes of bugs. It is of a very easy reading level, so children in first grade could use this book to learn about bugs.

By the author of Goodnight Moon, this book shows why Margaret Wise Brown is the master of simple stories for kids! Teaches adjectives.
I just can't give a decent rating to a book that shows three Bumble bees jumping of a flower and chasing a kid playing.
Great book to explore bugs and insects.

Grades: Pre-K - 3
Topics: Insects, bugs

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.

Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or p...more
