Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Yet another pop-up book featuring David Carter's whimsical bugs, this Christmas addition packs a surprise at the end. (Warning to parents: the cover of the book refers to it as "a merry pop-up book with lights and music.") First released in 1992, a more compact version is new for this Christmas season. The text is very simple rhyming couplets—the first poses a question, such as "who hangs with the bow and the mistletoe?" and the facing page has an answering phrase revealed when the pop-up is activated ("Jingle bugs swinging to and fro" in this case.) After the inaugural "How Many Bugs in a Box?" the whole bug theme has not made much sense, but it is still fun. The paper engineering is fairly effective in this book—my only concern is that one of the pop-ups is an ornament bug that is completely removable, and thus easily lost. 2004 (orig. 1992), Little Simon/Simon & Schuster, Ages 3 to 6.

Goofy riddle rhymes like "Who's in the chimney, warm and snug? / Ho, ho, ho! It's Santa Bug!" will appeal to an older child. Younger child will love the surprises of peek-a-boos, participation and the musical ending. Parents will appreciate the cleverness of design and the zany wildness the author inspires. David Carter's Jingle Bugs is for the whole family to laugh over.

David Carter's bug series books have been a favorite for some time now. This book, Jingle Bugs, is my personal favorite because in addition to the pop-ups, it features holiday music and lights. My kids love it. Great holiday gift for toddlers and preschoolers.

I work at a day care and no matter what time of year it is they always want this book. It's to the point where they read it right along with me.

This is GREAT my classroom loves it and every year I have to bring it out to read to them. They ask for it over and over! My children at home LOVE it as well and I have to hide it from them so that they don't drain the battery. I will have to buy a new one for next year because mine gets used so much!

Worst pop-up book ever !!! You will have a tough time finding out where's the light and music. And the so-called pop-ups are so unattractive. Very flimsy construction. Buy it only if you really hate the kid you are giving it to.

I received this book when I was 2 years old. I am 22 now and I can definitively say it was one of my favorites. It isn't the most durable book. Over the years I managed to tear the pop ups and whatnot, but I still love opening it up and looking through it. I will be ordering one for my baby cousins.
