Mrs. Peanuckle’s Bug Alphabet introduces babies and toddlers to all sorts of interesting bugs. Perfect to read aloud, this creepy, crawly adventure will engage children and parents alike with its vibrant illustrations and fascinating facts about bugs. Learning the ABCs has never been so bitingly fun! Mrs. Peanuckle’s Bug Alphabet is the fourth title in a series of board books celebrating the joy of nature at home and in the backyard, from fresh fruits and vegetables to birds, flowers, and trees.
I love board books that have various levels of depth. This is one of those. You can read just the alphabet portion or dive into the details about each bug. Mrs. Peanuckle also does a nice job with her bug choices and doesn’t include “gross” bugs.
All of the Mrs. Peanuckle books I’ve read so far have been fantastic. Chock full of facts, great typography, bright colors and Jessie Ford has managed to simultaneously be true to a bugs anatomy (as far as an untrained eye can tell) while simultaneously making over 90% of them actually cute!
I love Mrs. Peanuckle’s books! First off, all of the illustrations, colors, and fonts are so fun! The book is gorgeous. Second, this book has a ton of great facts and teaches you about a lot of different bugs! I learned quite a few new things from it. The only reason I’m not rating this book higher is because I personally don’t love bugs and wouldn’t want to read about them over and over, though this book might change that. ;)
Mrs. Peanuckle loves to write, talk to animals and birds, and putter in her garden. She has a vast assortment of children and grandchildren (some of them pets and some of them imaginary). She also collects rocks, shells, books, and eccentric friends. When she is not traveling and exploring the universe, you can find her cooking and eating while singing in her magical cabin in the woods. Most of all, she loves to laugh.
Jessie Ford is an English illustrator, who’s colourful view of the world has been brightening up people’s lives for the last decade. Her graphic shapes, textured layers and silhouetted figures culminate in a printed, ‘hand-made’ effect. With a love of all things bright, bold and graphic, Jessie’s faux naive charm has been used extensively within the publishing, advertising, editorial, packaging and design sectors. Her strong and confident use of colour has won her many fans over the years. Jessie loves nothing better than a bear in a tutu, possibly wearing a crown, and riding on a bike…
