One Little Bug by Paola Van Turennout

Book Description

Bugs climb on top of each other from one to ten until the last bug - a tiny flea - topples the pile. Then off they go home, one by one, except for the first little bug who waits patiently until the next time the reader opens the book. This happy book is perfect for children who are new to numbers and simple sums. Bold graphics and bright colours excite the eye and make the book's lessons fun.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Very simple, Byron Barton-like art featuring a dozen mites with engagingly oversized, googly eyes overcomes iffy rhyming-and even iffier biology-to offer a deceptively sophisticated sequence of math and design concepts. It begins and ends with a "bug"-actually a caterpillar-who provides the supporting base for various combinations of creatures-from a spider and a pair of snails to worms, bees, and finally a tiny flea, all of whom arrive or depart piecemeal, perch together in various acrobatic architectures, then finally disperse after the inevitable collapse: "Look out-they're falling! / The poor little things! / They all should go home / Before bedtime begins." Verbal pratfalls aside, this makes a playful way to take that first, challenging step past simple addition, offering plenty of practice in both counting and pattern recognition. (Picture book. 3-4) (Kirkus Reviews)
