Booklist Review

Gr. 1-2. The world of multi-legged and multi- colored tiny creatures, from one fat red bug through five flying bugs is explored by two children in this addition to the Rookie Reader series. Well-composed, sprightly full-page watercolors are an enticement to very early readers. A list of the 33 words used is appended. -- Phillis Wilson
