Mrs. Peanuckle’s Bug Alphabet introduces babies and toddlers to all sorts of interesting bugs. Perfect to read aloud, this creepy, crawly adventure will engage children and parents alike with its vibrant illustrations and fascinating facts about bugs. Learning the ABCs has never been so bitingly fun!
Mrs. Peanuckle’s Bug Alphabet is the fourth title in a series of board books celebrating the joy of nature at home and in the backyard, from fresh fruits and vegetables to birds, flowers, and trees.
Third in a series of alphabet books from the pseudonymous Mrs. Peanuckle, this board book offers a lighthearted look at 26 insects, from ant to zorapteran. The bugs are introduced in "A is for..." form, paired with pleasantly textured digital illustrations and chatty commentary. Most of these extra details fall into the category of intriguing trivia, but a couple are misleading (a dragonfly's head is described as "one big eye") or not entirely substantiated by science, namely the debatable claim that a rhinoceros beetle "can lift 850 times its own weight." Simultaneously available: Mrs. Peanuckle's Flower Alphabet. Up to age 3.
