I Like Bugs by Margaret Wise Brown is a level one Step into Reading book. It is a very easy read with only 3-4 words per page. I enjoyed this book but it was sometimes hard for young children to tell what the pictures of the bugs in the book were. I used this book in a tutoring session with a PreK student and they struggled to understand how the same bugs were different or why they were being repeated so much. It tended to make things a little confusing especially when the bugs on the page weren’t the main focus and were too tiny to see. I think the illustrations were alright but not always very clear for young readers. I think I would have liked this book better if while it was talking about “round bugs” and “shiny bugs” or “mean bugs” and “nice bugs,” it gave names for some of the bugs since the pictures were hard to decipher. I think this book is better for students a little older than PreK when they already know more insects better and can recognize them but I think this is a good read for younger students who are learning to read on their own. It is a good book to read to learn simple things about different insects at a young age. ( )

Personal Reaction to Book: This book is one that is great for younger children. This book has great illustrations, easy to read text, and overall a great book for children to help them feel confident when first learning to read. The good thing is that this book is suitable for both girls and boys.
Extension Ideas:
1. The children will pick out the adjectives used in this book.
2. The children will draw a picture of what they believe one of the bug described in this book looks like.
