Editorial Reviews

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.)

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.

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.

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.

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.
