What Kind of Book is Bugs Galore

Quotes from Bugs Galore

  • “Some bugs cruise around in groups. Some bugs fly in loop-de-loops. Some bugs land smack dab in soups. Some bugs crawl right under . . . OOPS.”
  • “Lightning glow bugs. Nighttime show bugs. Shining bright bugs. What-a-sight bugs!”
  • “Dirt bugs, tree bugs, hard-to-see bugs. Mean bugs, kind bugs, fun to find bugs. Bugs and MORE bugs! Can’t ignore bugs. Don’t-inhale-them- while-you-snore bugs!”

Bugs Galore is a terrific addition to any bug loving child’s library. Peter Stein will wow you with never ending rhymes about all kinds of bugs, while Bob Staake’s recognizable illustration style brings it all to life (fortunately, not literally).

This is a fun book with cheery illustrations. The rhyming text is fun to read, and the detailed pictures on each page give us lots to talk about. This book is a fun read on its own, but would also be a great jumping-off point to learn more about insects.

Who Wrote Bugs Galore

Peter Stein

Making books is one of my favorite things in the world, but not my ONLY favorite thing. I also love hanging out with my family and giant dog Theo, playing the guitar, running, and doing non book-related art projects. Music is always a part of my creative routing (unless I’m writing, then quiet is the key), and I have a growing list of podcasts keep things interesting when in the middle of a project.
