100 BUGS: A COUNTING BOOK
Written by Kate Narita
Illustrated by Suzanne Kaufman
Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (June 2018)
Themes: Counting to 100, bugs
Synopsis: From Amazon:
How many bugs can you count? From walking sticks to spittlebugs, dragonflies to katydids, discovering 10 bugs at a time, you just might see 100 bugs!
Little explorers will learn 10 different ways to count to 10, using 10 different kinds of bugs, and get all the way to 100 by the end of their adventure. With Suzanne Kaufman’s bright, whimsical illustrations and Kate Narita’s clever rhyming text, 100 Bugs! is part look-and-find, part learning experience, and all kinds of fun.
Why I like this book:
- Bugs, bugs, and more bugs – a topic most kids LOVE to learn about
- Fabulous illustrations
- Clever rhymes and super interactivity to engage the kiddos
- First off…take a walk and find bugs!
- Make a list or chart of all the bugs – place them in different categories like flying, crawling, creeping.
- Create one of these crafts
