Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Following the success of his many small bug books, from Alpha Bugs and Beach Bugs, to Jingle Bugs and Stinky Bugs, Carter presents the Big Bug Book . Using rhymed couplets across the large double pages, he offers a variety of bugs in different locations engaged in many various activities. He begins with a comic "waffle bug" that sticks its tongue out when the waffle iron is opened. There are sound effects as saws cut through a wooden crate and "noisy bugs work hard…" The convoluted Kissing Bugs have "lots of love." There are flaps to lift as well as pop-ups as pages turn. Part of the fun is in examining the engineering that makes the actions possible. Readers should be inspired to make pop-ups of their own. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

My 4 year old daughter received this book as a birthday gift. It is one of her favorite bedtime story books. She loves to lift the flaps and read along with me. What makes this book so special is that the pop ups are not average. There are some lift-the-flaps, the frog-bugs have red elastic tongues, there are bugs hanging from the basket handle. This is our first David Carter pop up book, and I will be looking at others to add to our home library. I highly recommend this book!

I bought this book for my great nephew who loves bugs. He is four and he just loved it! We read it twice through the first time and he loved the pop ups and the doors and pulls. It is a lot of fun to look at and gives bugs a whole new look. I would suggest it for the young bug lovers in your life!

I bought this book for my grandson, who is 3 years old and loves to be read to anytime of the day but most especially at bedtime. This book is beautifully rendered and an absolute delight for Parker. It is the book that is most often asked for at bedtime. He loves the pop-ups, they are colorful and thoroughly entertaining. I usually get "Can you read it one more time, Nana?" and of course I usually do. Don't hesitate to buy!!

This is an adorable book, and my son just loves it. It is the best of all the "bug" books in one. I definitely recommend it.
