Crawly School for Bugs: Poems to Drive You Buggy
Imagine, if you will, a school for bugs — little bugs, big bugs, lightning bugs, hopping bugs, crawling bugs, flying bugs, stinking bugs, even blood-sucking bugs. Imagine the antics of these bugs as they play, learn, count, bug the teacher, and get into buggy mischief. School is something kids know about, and bugs are something kids, for the most part, like. What a great combination for a children’s picture book! Then imagine perfectly charming, playful, fresh, funny poems by a master of children’s poetry, David L. Harrison — some rhyming, some alliterative, and some just plain silly. Place all these poems on illustrations by Julie Bayless, a master in her own right, that capture the sense of each poem and are filled with the most marvelous details. Kids will want to read this book over and over and will enjoy the poems with every reading. Their eyes will be glued to the illustrations as they find more and more giggles scattered around the pages. The illustrations are bright and perfectly enchanting. The poems couldn’t be more whimsical or delightful. This book will become a favorite of children, parents, and teachers alike. Don’t miss it.
