Children Ages 4-6 • 14 min. • Unabridged • © 1999

Simple and friendly descriptions of common bugs are paired with a print book that provides additional facts and drawings that show actual sizes. The text is set to a jaunty tune with vocals that capture the energy of the book’s vibrant, multitextured collage illustrations. The “Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!” song is catchy and well enunciated, making it easy for listeners to sing along. Narrator Crystal Taliefero’s pacing and inflection of the text are strong, and page-turn signals help listeners follow along with the illustrations. A "Meet the Bugs" informational piece, which appears as an afterword, is read clearly by Alexandra Secchi—although the absence of that material in the book may be confusing to some. Young listeners will surely be tapping their feet to this infectious read-along. J.K.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
