This is a informative and fun book about creepy crawlies! What kid doesn’t like bugs? My two are fascinated by their tiny wings and legs and their amazing eyes! 

While at the library I let the kids pick whatever children’s books they want. More often than not a few books like this pop in the bag and I do my best to encourage their curiosity. 

BUGS had just the right amount of information mixed with fun to keep my mini readers entranced. The cover is bland and I expected the pictures to be a bit boring but they weren’t at all! Might work on that cover a bit though. It’s not very eye catching.

The only complaint (other than the cover) that I have is that this series ( Biggest Baddest Books for Boy) is incredibly sexist. I dislike teaching children that some things are aimed toward their gender and those are the things they should be interested in. I’m very unhappy with this categorization. Bugs are for everyone. Period. 

Due to the boring cover and sexist categorization I’m rating this book at 3 stars.
