Welcome to today’s post for the A to Z Blog Challenge where I am featuring ABC books. Today’s letter is I so I’d like to share
THE ICKY BUG ALPHABET BOOK
by Jerry Pallota (author) and Ralph Masiell
“Icky” is a word that many people use to describe insects. Jerry Pallotta uses the word in his title but after reading the twenty-six alphabetical entries in The Icky Bug Alphabet Book, I think “Icky” should be changed to “Interesting.” This alphabet book gives fascinating details about each bug which will delight all curious young naturalists. This is more than an alphabet book – it is a clear and simply written introduction to scientific nonfiction with facts and interesting details. The illustrations that accompany each bug are bright and vivid. I used this book with kindergarteners who loved it so much that I needed to get extra copies!
This is one of many alphabet books written by Jerry Pallotta. His books cover a range of themes including airplanes, butterflies, crabs, dinosaurs, frogs, and many more. A to Z Bloggers should take a look at his books when stumped for ideas.
