I Love Bugs by Elspeth Alix Batt.

September 3, 2020

I Love Bugs by Elspeth Alix Batt. Pub. OneTree House, 2020.

Any illustrator that can put a smile on the face of an earwig is OK by me.

This energetic and poetic picture book about bugs is a total delight. In it are grubs that are wrinkly and wriggly, spiders that are jumpy and jiggly, crickets that are pleasingly prickly but I couldn’t find any feelings for the mosquitos that are wily and whiny, although they certainly are.

Then there is the gecko. Check this superb picture book out and see what happens.

The illustrations are first class with each bug given a suitable character within it’s habitat.

In the back there is a list of the bugs shown with an accurate profile.

A good read-a-loud for juniors and introduction to the world of bugs.

Great humour.
