I loved this book. Each page was a number and that number of bugs. The bugs were different, i.e. not bumblebee, butterfly. Also, the information that went along with the bug and the number were great. They were interesting and informative. I was intrigued by reading it, so I know that children will too. Overall, a great read. ( )

I really liked this book because it not only shared information about various insects, but it also is a great tool for teaching counting. The book also is set up in a way where the information that is being displayed is not overwhelming for the reader. They organized the information in a very simple, and cute way for kids to read. I also really enjoyed the illustrations on the pages and found them to help children when counting out the bugs. ( )

Summary: The book is full of bugs and it briefly tells about their habitat, their tendencies and gives a picture of what they look like. At the end, it states that the book only names 26 because there is one letter for each letter of the alphabet if you go backwards.

Personal Reaction: I do not really care to learn about bugs personally, but I can appreciate the information. I love the fact that there is kind of a secret message that you don't find out until the end, how if you read from the last page, it will be the A,B,C's!

Classroom Extension: This book is a great counting book, and also a great informational book about different bugs. After you finish the book, you could go backwards with your students, just briefly, enough to show them the alphabet in the book. ( )
