It’s always exciting to discover a new series for emerging readers and Dirt and Bugsy are characters that kids will fall in love with. Dirt and Bugsy are great friends who are fascinated by bugs. They search and find bugs, create habitats where they can study them, and then they let them go. They always have a plan to find bugs and use stem techniques as they sort and categorize the bugs.
Why you need to add these books to your early reader shelves:
- The stories are fun, witty, and humorous – just right for emerging readers
- the books include facts and ideas that kids will love
- the interracial friendship is genuine and sincere
- Simple and clear back matter is perfectly kid-friendly
- the bright and cheerful illustrations make backyard science accessible and fun
We’re looking forward to more adventures with Dirt and Bugsy!
