Just to bug you.....

Quote of the day:

      "To learn to read is to light a fire, every syllable that is spelled out is a spark." - Victor Hugo

Today's featured book:

Title:  "I Love Bugs!"
Author/Illustrator:  Emma Dodd
Ages:  3+

Let's take a peek inside shall we?

About the book:

This book will have your little one running out the door and wanting to become an outdoor detective just like the narrator of the story.  The narrator, a little boy, is simply enthralled with the bug world and through large, vibrant, colourful illustrations his passion is passed on to the reader. Using large print and a smorgasbord of adjectives the little boy describes why these bugs are so endearing to him. "I love fuzzy sunny honey bugs and furry whirry funny bugs."  "I love whiny buzzy sound bugs and glide-across-the ground bugs."  

And then the big reveal happens....his most favourite bug of all?  "But the best bugs are hairy bugs.  Eight-legged scary bugs."  Whatever bug could he be describing?  Your child will discover and guess what that bug is and why the little boy has picked him to be his all time favourite. The drama and suspense surrounding that find will reinforce the fact that most kids although frightened by something will come back again and again to take a peek at the culprit just for the thrill of it and therefore will come back again and again to read this fun book.  I am sure both you and your child will be delighted with this book.
