Leon Loves Bugs

(2000)
A Picture Book by

 
 
Leon just can't leave bugs alone. They fascinate him and he can watch them for hours. But unfortunately Leon doesn't stop watching. He loves to trap them, stomp on their homes and when he is in a particularly bad mood he might even break off a leg or a wing. "What's the big deal?" asks Leon. "It's only a spider."

But what Leon really needs is to see things from a different point of view--a bug's point of view. Only then will he be taught a lesson he will never forget ...

Dyan Sheldon gets a serious message across with a lightness of touch that is aided by Scoular Anderson's witty illustrations in a book with short chapters and large typefaces that make Leon Loves Bugs ideal for children who are just becoming confident readers and are looking to gain fluency. --Pauline Sutton
