There’s a Bug on My Book!
Written and Illustrated by John Himmelman
So much to learn and see just from the immediate world around us. Just going outside and sitting still yields a wealth of information. A beetle might land on your book before it decides to fly away. A snake might slither across on its way to who knows where. A grasshopper lands and takes off. A spider might need to be encouraged to slide off the page. A slug might eventually find its way back off the page. Pillbugs are fun to watch roll into balls. They will also need to be slid off the book. A tree frog would probably hold onto an upside down book. Ants will also need to help to leave and to avoid the frog. The snake comes back for a frog snack.
Action packed illustrations add to the fun with apparently crumpled pages and slug slime trails.
