Bug Hunt by Tom Story

Rating: 4 out of 5.

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: I loved the little girl in this story. She is clearly so fascinated by bugs and just wants to see them, but they keep getting away from her!

How I Felt: I wasn’t sure if my daughter would be willing to read this book with all the creepy-crawlies in it, but the artwork was well done and she was interested! I got a bit nervous at the end of the book when the wasp chases her, but the author ended that part of the story so well. The wasp ends up being friends with her, which we all know is very out of character for wasps, so this little girl clearly found a special one!

To Read or Not To Read: This is a great book for kids with a love for insects! The writing is perfect for Pre-K to early elementary.

What’s This Book About Anyway?

A little girl wants to go on a bug hunt. She’s got all of her bug hunting gear: the clothes, bug container, and her bug book. She finds lots of insects, but she can’t seem to capture any of them. They keep getting away. She finally finds the wasp, but it chases her! She manages to capture it without getting stung and makes friends with it. Showing the wasp her adorable book, she calms him down and lets him out so that they can hang out together.
