When I saw the title of this book, I just had to read it. If you aren't already aware, I call my daughter Bug. I have since she was a few weeks old. So, now everything to do with bugs reminds me of her. Okay okay....not EVERYTHING bug related makes me think of her (like the little crawlies themselves), but a lot of the cute bug stuff does.
Anyways, I am glad that I was chosen to partake in this particular blog tour hosted by Irish Banana. I didn't even realize it when I signed up for it that this book is published by one of my favorite publishers! Disney-Hyperion is a publisher that doesn't usually disappoint me. And once again Disney-Hyperion came through for me!
By now I bet you are wondering what this book is about. Well, it is about a boy who loves bugs! He loves them so much, he wants to be able to share them with everyone else. After a bit of thought he decided that he would start a bug zoo so that others could come visit and see all of the cool bugs!
Unfortunately, he discovers that the bugs aren't doing too well in their jars. This causes him to try out a few different ideas of how he can help out his bugs.
In the end, I thought it was a pretty cute story. My husband also happened to be in the room when I read it to my Bug and he said that he enjoyed it as well. I would ask my daughter her opinion, but she is only barely just 1 year old and doesn't have words yet!
The art work in this book though, it is top notch. It is very bright and vibrant - very pleasant to look at. Very very well done!
With the pictures and the story, you will have a lot to talk about while reading through the story and afterwards. This is a great addition to your storytime library, especially if you have a bug lover!
