Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Shaped like a heart, David A. Carter's Love Bugs Mini Edition is a handsize version of the 1995 original, just right for presenting as a Valentine for all ages. Pop-ups of googly-eyed creatures (e.g., Cupid Bugs, Kissing Bugs and topped off with "a dozen Rosebugs") take center stage. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In sync with Valentine's Day's time-honored ``hearts and flowers'' motif, the creator of Jingle Bugs and Alpha Bugs fills this heart-shaped confection with sublimely silly Love Bugs, Rosebugs and similar species-all that's missing are lacy edges. And instead of the pull-tabs and flaps of Carter's earlier books, here all is intricately giddy, pop-up paper-engineering supporting a gaggle of multi-antennaed creatures (bug-eyed, of course) in appropriate reds and pinks. The opening spread, for example, swarms with fleecy clouds, against which is posed a bevy of pink-winged (and apparently unclothed) Cupid Bugs, ``shooting arrows through the air.'' The Kissing Bug suitably leaves a trail of lipstick kisses, while the eponymous insect itself is puckered up and ready for action. Who could resist such amorous antics? Ages 8-up. (Feb.)
Children's Literature - 3 up, $12 95
Carte has created a red and white heart-shaped, pop-up book that is sure to please little ones. No great poetry here just rhymes with strange little bugs that jump up off the pages.

    A Valentine Message with a Pop!

    This colorful book is engaging for young children. I have sent it to adults, as well, when I've wanted something cute that was not quite a present, but that was more significant than a card.

    Great for preschool

    I love that the bugs pop out and that I can use it for Valentines day or if you do not do Valentines day then you can do friendship day. I then have a bug bingo game that I made, and then have an art project where the children can create bugs using differnt size and color hearts. This is a great book to inspire different activities to cover almost all developmental domains.

    This book comes in 2 sizes and when I ordered mine I did not know that and the small version came, I recommand the larger or normal size book to share with the class, the small one is fine for a couple of children but not a group.

    A must for paper folding aficionadas. This book is outstanding in its pop-up glory.
