I Love Bugs by Emma Dodd

What bugs can you and your child find in your garden or near where you live? Can you find a jumpy bug or a spiky bug? Ask your child what their best bug might be like. Share the book – discover the bugs together! 

Reserve a copy of this book

Now you’ve enjoyed a great book, try this:

in the great outdoors…

  • Create a picture of a bug on the ground together.
  • Ask your child what they think.
  • Ask them if they can make a snake from sticks or if those large leaves make butterfly wings?
  • Can they move like the bug, flutter like a butterfly or slither like a snake?

and at home…

  • Collect some stones with your child. Using paint, create your own bugs.
  • You could paint one red with black spots to make a ladybird or invent your own special family bug.
  • Your child could make up a name for your family bug.
