    There's a Bug On My Book would be a fun read for an outside, bugs, or nonfiction based storytime. I enjoyed the vocabulary very much as well.After all was said and done, while I understand the purpose of meta books and how they relate to play, I'm kind of tired of them.

    A simple interactive book about bugs and other outdoor creatures. Most of the information is in the endnotes.

    Animal locomotion is shown in graphics that make it look as if the animals are on the book's pages. The text is solid though a bit hokey.

    Fun for one on one or summer bug story time. Nice intro to bugs and how they move.

    Excellent interactive picture book about bugs. Cool illustrations, and pages of facts at the end. And can I just say, I love John Himmelman's sense of humor!

    So much to learn and see just from the immediate world around us. Action packed illustrations add to the fun with apparently crumpled pages and slug slime trails. Many activities will grow out of this book. In fact, the book itself is an activity.

    I would love to read this book to a child, as I think this would be a great read-aloud book, with lots of fun activities for the reader.

    Really cute interactive book. Teaching bug action words. Would be better for older kids.

    A great kids non-fiction book about bugs, snakes, frogs and more than you can see while outside. This is a fun way to learn about the living things that surround you.

    This is a nice interactive nonfiction read aloud for lower elementary.

    Wow! The detail on some of the creatures featured in this cleverly-designed and -imagined book is incredible. In it, the author-illustrator uses a careful lens to focus on the smallest or least interesting living things such as the slug. He suggests that readers take the book outside to read, and watch what happens. Before they know it, a bug has landed on the book, and it is followed by many other animals, including a snake, a frog, a pillbug, and even a worm. Each of them moves in different ways, a notion that is explored further in the back matter. Readers are encouraged to move the book around a bit and tap gently some of the visitors to move them along. I smiled when I saw the slime trail left by the ever-slow exit of the snail. The soft green background enhances the book's appearance and this different approach to the natural world is creative and engaging. The truth is that it is highly likely that a bug or two will land on your book if you choose to read it outdoors. At least that's what always happens to me. Add this one to your science classroom library.
