The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle
Let's admit it; bug week might as well be called Eric Carle week by the look of our book haul from the library this week. I cant help it. No one does bugs like Eric Carle and I recommend any one of his works. Zeke especially enjoyed the Very Quiet Cricket's repetition however, as well as the long parade of different insects the cricket comes upon in his journey. Not to mention the best surprise of all, a beautiful cricket call when you open the last page.
I Love Bugs by Emma Dodd
The fun rhyming verses describe how a wide variety of bugs move, look, and sound, and how much one little boy loves them! The large and brightly colored illustrations capture the essence of each insect, along with expressive cartoon eyes and smiling faces.
