"No matter what the weather outside is actually like, your family can celebrate the arrival of spring with Some Bugs by Angela DiTerlizzi. Fun rhymes introduce kids to insects including butterflies, cicadas, and beetles. The vibrant artwork makes the bugs look appealing rather than gross, so even squeamish young children can enjoy the story." - PARENTS Magazine
"A big gray cat with a wary look prowls into his owner's garden and encounters a breath-taking - yet commonplace - variety of bugs. With only a few words on each colorful, busy page, DiTerlizzi and Wenzel convey a comic spectrum of insect antics, from fighting to stinking, hunting, building and clicking. . . . Each specimen is identified by its (often remarkable) name on the book's final pages." - New York Times Book Review Children's Bookshelf
