My 6 year-old son really enjoyed this book. It's an entertaining book for younger kids, probably up to around second grade. ( )

This is a silly book on "catching a bug." Very colorful and silly, making it easy to laugh about being sick and having to take pills to get better. This book could possibly help when a child is hesitant to taking medication recommended by a doctor. This book is an example of writing in order, meaning: first, then, last. ( )

One day Buz the bug got eaten along with some cornflakes. Buz found himself in a peculiar situation because he was in a child. The child went to the doctor and gave him some bills to get rid of the bug. Buz hid all over to hide from the pills until he finally escaped the boy’s body. When Buz returned home he went to the doctor and the doctor gave him pills because he caught a germ. ( )

Summary: The story Buz is about a little bug who was accidentally swallowed by a child. He battles mashing molars, blinding lights, and pill police who are trying to destroy him! Finally Buz escapes, only to find out that he’s caught a germ. This is a cute book that can help students with perspective taking. This story takes the perspective of a little bug—something that most children would not think twice about. The story also ends in a way that promotes making predictions about what might happen next. Making predictions is a great comprehension strategy.
This story could be used as a mentor text for teaching students about perspective taking. The students could pick an animal, or inanimate object, and try to write in this new perspective.

A boy eats a bug named buss. When the boy goes to the doctor he gets pills to find buzz and capture him. Buzz comes out of the boy’s body through his ear while in the bathtub. When Buzz goes home, he now has to take pills. I can teach about what happens when you get sick and also have the kids predict what will happen when Buzz takes the pills.
