This book is a fictional children's picture book. The story is a cute book for children and has a great message. I love the colorful illustrations, and how the book teaches children kindness over being grouchy. I would recommend this book be read to pre-k through 3rd grade. This book has a great moral and teaches children a good message. ( )

I liked this book because it shows how someone's attitude can change when they get a piece of their own medicine. This is a fun book I would read to my younger students to show them about different moods and to show them how it is not ok to be grouchy. ( )

I think this is good because it is good for kids to be able to describe their moods from a young age. Its also a fun book to read because you can read it in a grouchy voice and be silly about it. ( )

Aphids are very small insects. They suck the juice from leaves, and then the leaves die. Ladybugs eat aphids. That's good for trees, shrubs, and other plants that have leaves. To the ladybugs I have dedicated this book. Three cheers for them!

Book description
Der kleine Käfer Immerfrech ist ein ziemliches Großmaul, denn er fordert alle Tiere, denen er begegnet, zum Kampf heraus - bis ein riesiger Wal ihm eine Lektion erteilt, die er nicht so schnell vergessen wird. Ein lustiges und durchaus lehrreiches Bilderbuch, mit dem jedes Kind auch ganz leicht die Uhrzeit lesen lernt.
