Review: Nasty BugsUser Review - Nicole - Goodreads
Some pretty cute, fun to read aloud poems in here. The viewpoint is decidedly against the bugs, but some are a bit more creative. The illustrations are big, vibrant, and good for a storytime. I particularly liked the Boll Weevil poem/song as it begs for rhythm and a voice. Read full review
Review: Nasty BugsUser Review - Jeanne - Goodreads
Yuck! Not sure entomologists would appreciate the tone of this book. Bunch of poems inform the reader about bugs. Not the best poetry, but probably entertaining to the intended audience. Viciously cute illustrations. Read full review
