review î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Jerry PallottaE is consumed with numbers number educationapplication and fun facts However the final page attempts a play on words to make the reader think and apply what heshe has learned In theory it is a neat ending in reality it is way to confusing for the intended audience This counting book from zero to twenty six not only teaches how to count but provides excellent factual information on insects and bugs as well The reader gets bang for the buck as nature is revealed I enjoy these Icky Bug books and the kids do too This one has an interesting twistpuzzle to the kids do too This one has an interesting twistpuzzle to at the end which is nice My son has had this book since infancy and we ve tried to read it a few times but he always needed a modified version to sit through it ust counting or counting with ust a few details from the text etc Now at 5 12 he s ready to sit through the whole thing and eats up all the bug facts My 2 year old sat through the whole thing willingly and attentively as well but probably only because her big brother was there providing an example This is definitely better for the 4 6 age range 1992 You ve got to love a counting book that starts with zero a number most authors overlook and counts through 26 Why 26 You may not realize until you get to the end that there has been one bug for every letter of the alphabet in reverse order from Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly to Army Ants The text is engagingly informative with facts such as wasps were making paper from chewed up wood thousands of years before people figured out how to do it and pillbugs are crustaceans like lobsters and crabsRalph Masiello s illustrations are painted in a simple realistic style that is appropriate to the informative nature
