I Love Bugs!

by Philemon Sturges
Illustrated by Shari Halpern

Published by HarperCollins, 2005
24 pages
ISBN: 0060561688

Ages 2-5

This book for budding entomologists uses brief, declarative sentences, and catchy rhymes to catalog a few of the reasons insects are intriguing. “These bugs paddle. / This one weaves. / Some make honey. / Some chew leaves.” Bold illustrations show a child observing and photographing bugs hiding under rocks, swooping through the air, clinging to tree bark, and flitting “round the back porch light.” The intrepid naturalist even finds a bug to love at home, as he snaps a shot of his toddler sister, outfitted in a ladybug sleeper. Drawings of the child’s “photographs” of the insects encountered throughout the book are shown on the endpapers, with each bug identified by name and captioned with a fun fact (“Some ants can carry more than twenty times their own weight!”).  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
