When one blueberry starts rolling down the hill, each of the insects it passes eyes it for their next meal. Each group of creatures grows by one: two red ants, three ladybugs, etc. Just as the last group gets there, a bird swoops in and takes the blueberry. So the insects decide to stay and play together.
It was fun to have a board book that was bigger than the palm of my hand. While I enjoyed reading those with my child, the larger pages are a bit easier for little hands to grasp. The larger illustrations allow plenty of time to point to the insects and make it easier to count them, too. Because of its short shelf life (it is about counting, not much story) I would encourage you to borrow this from the library.
The insects are super cute, and the book's size makes it fun to count the bugs on each page. Toddlers will love being able to "play" with this counting book. Cardboard pages make this durable, even sized as a picture book.
This is a board book that is sized like a picture book. It is built for small hands!
When sharing with toddlers and preschoolers talk about color, different types of insects, and counting. Use your fingers on the page to help them connect what you say to what they see.
