Bug Off! Book Review

Bug Off! Creepy, Crawly Poems

Disclosure – SCM (SocialCafe Magazine) was provided FREE product(s) to complete this review.

In Bug Off! readers meet thirteen bugs in playful, humorous poems and startling, intimate photographs.

This book of poems is perfect way to learn more about the bugs around us. Kids will love the pictures and fun poems inside. Beautifully photographed and written book.

Nonfiction prose paragraphs broaden the perspective: Children will learn how bees make honey, that many butterflies can taste food with their feet, that lovebugs can fly higher than the Empire State Building, and much more. The subjects will be familiar to kids—a fly, praying mantis, honeybee, butterfly, daddy longlegs, lovebug, dragonfly, tick, ladybug, spider, grasshopper, ants, and a swarm of bugs—but the poems, photographs, and nonfiction passages present them in eye-opening new ways. Includes an author’s note that encourages readers to write their own bug poems.
