What My Child Is Reading This Week-Bugs and Insects

We have checked out LOTS of books over the last 2 weeks relating to our bugs and insects theme. Some have been a hit, some not so much. The hits have been The Very Ugly Bug, The Caterpillow Fight, Bob and Otto, The Big Bug Ball, and I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. The first 2 were read over and over and OVER again. Little R was able to recognize the covers to the first 3 after a few days and would say, "read Bob and Otto" or "read the Caterpillow Fight" when she saw them. Love it!!
Some of the not so liked ones- Manuelo, the Playing Mantis (just didn't hold her attention), Insects Are My Life (probably a bit too advanced), and On Beyond Bugs.
We also read a few books we already had around the house-Ten Little Ladybugs, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and A Bug's Life.
I will post soon about some of our bug/insect themed activities.

These looks wonderful. What a perfect topic for this time of year.

Thanks for coming by and visiting my blog. There are some activities on Lesson Pathways that I think can be watered down for a 3 yr old. I marked some to do with my 3 yr old. I love your bug books!! I am having my son sit in while doing some unit studies with his older brothers this year and we are starting with plants, then bugs before other animals. I saw your profile said you live in FL, me too! I plan on taking them to the Butterfly Pavilion at UF sometime this month while studying bugs.
