Reviews

PreS-Gr 2--Bob Barner's simple nonfiction book (Chronicle, 1999) is happily animated, set to music, and performed in a rap style for this fun production. The bouncy, rhyming text is delightfully suited to this format, and the vivid illustrations have been computer animated, while retaining their collage style. The infectious music is enough to recommend the program, but the DVD also extends the book, adding a "Meet the Bugs" section that provides additional interesting facts about the featured creatures, and using the bug graph at the back of the book as the basis for a "Bug-o-meter" game that would be fun to play as a class. There is also an author interview, where children can find out the background behind some of Barner's books, and how he creates his illustrations. The same audio portion, without the game and interview, is available on CD for an enjoyable listening center opportunity. A terrific extension for primary teachers doing bug units.--Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Bold colors and lively rhyming text combine to make this eye-catching picture book a bug lover's delight. The text's simplicity will keep little ones engaged "Butterflies that flutter in the sky/Spotted ladybugs that go creeping by" and the Bug-O-Meter (a chart that answers questions such as "Can it fly" and "Where does it live?") is a device that older children will really enjoy. The vivid colors and bold shapes in Barner's collage illustrations will show well in a story-time setting, despite the book's smaller than average size, and will really grab kid's attention if the book is put on a display table.
