 Creepy Crawly FUN!

“What’s that in the bushes?” you ask.. come take a closer look, come out and see! Your backyard is alive with some marvelous, energetic bugs Smile

This is wonderful collection of poems introducing 15 amazing insects. Meet snail, slug, worm, spider, fly, beetle, earwig, stick insect, ant, caterpillar, ladybug, centipede, bee, dragonfly and the grasshopper.

Bustle in the Bushes Beginning

 

Each poem is written in a gentle rhyme. Each poem features a different bug and includes an interesting fact about it. And each poem about these “minibeasts” are accompanied by bold colorful illustrations! Aimed at readers 3-7 years, this book is an instant charmer. Curious kids will discover adorable creepy, crawly, slimy creatures that hide in plain sight.

 Bustle in the Bushes S

It was hard to pick a favorite one! They are all delightful and easy to read and listen. Now we are looking forward to Giles’ “Commotion in the Ocean” and “Rumble in the Jungle”!

“Did you like those minibeasts?

What a lot there are!

Flying, crawling, slithering

And jumping, oh so far!”

So grab this adorable book of poems and head to your nearby park. Dig into those bushes and maybe you will find a “ladybug or a dragonfly or maybe a beetle or bee”! Smile
