A great book about bugs. ABC's ( )
  Heidi_Ruckle | Jul 18, 2014 |
Jerry Palotta’s book provides an accurate description of varying insects from A to Z. The interesting and factual text is accompanied by Ralph Masiello’s vibrant and realistic oil paint illustrations to captivate the minds of young entomologically minded readers. The book includes a disclaimer at the end to explain why arachnids were included in the Icky Bug Book as science minded individuals are quick to point out that spiders are not bugs. ( )

I'll bet you didn't know there were so many weird and yucky bugs around! This book introduces you to many strange insects and gives a bit of information on each one. ( )

Some of the bugs in the icky bug book are actually spiders or arachnids, but most are true insects. The teacher would have to discuss the difference, i.e. number of legs and body parts.

I heard Jerry Pallotta speak and he had explained that he had created the alphabet books that he had, because when his children were young there were not interesting alphabet books, or really any alphabet books. Jerry writes this book on Icky Bugs very creatively and it is also educational.

I think that this book could either be used with students for ideas of creating an alphabet book as a class or for information on bugs.
