review 1: A collection of creepy, crawly poems by some of today's most beloved children's poets This tribute to the delightful nastiness of bugs features sixteen poems by accomplished children's poets, including Marilyn Singer, J. Patrick Lewis, and Rebecca Andrew Loescher. From "Ode to a Dead Mosquito" to "Termite Tune," this brightly illustrated, kid-friendly collection riffs on the details of the world's most infamous insects. Fun facts about the featured creatures round out this sure bet for poetry fans and bug enthusiasts alike.
review 2: This is a humorous and entertaining collection about bugs most of us consider quite odious, like fleas, cockroaches, mosquitos and the like. The poems are short and most of them rhyme and while the poems can be enjoyed individuall
... morey, we really enjoyed reading them all at one time. The illustrations are colorful and the poor, maligned bugs sorta look cute. Overall, I think this is a great book of poems and would be useful in a classroom or for storytime. I have to admit that our girls decided to pass on the section in the back that provides additional information about each of the bugs profiled. less
