With chirpy rhyme and vivid colors, this book will inspire you to explore the outdoors together. Packed with action verbs, the rhythmic verse invites readers and listeners alike to chant along: “some bugs HOP / some bugs GLIDE / some bugs SWIM / and some bugs HIDE!” For the aspiring entomologist, a final two-page spread identifies these bugs by name – use it as a springboard for delving into some informational books about insects, or for making a checklist for an outdoor summer scavenger hunt. While outside, nurture early literacy and early science skills by asking questions, making predictions, and recording observations.
Our new favourite bugs book! Beautiful and funny.
Bug-obsessed kids are encouraged to explore their own backyards in this "marvelous encyclopedic look" (Publishers Weekly) at critters that creep, crawl, and fly. Each insect and arachnid is shown up close and described by its distinctive action: "Some bugs STING. Some bugs BITE. Some bugs STINK. And some bugs FIGHT!" Jaunty rhyming text keeps the pages turning at a steady clip right up to the surprise ending, which challenges readers to reconsider their perspective. Combining fascinating facts with eye-catching collage art, Some Bugs is sure to be a hit with fans of Steve Jenkins' many animal books.
