About Book

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1?A parade of bugs introduces size relationships in this playful approach to beginning math concepts. Comparisons of big (bigger, biggest) small (smaller, smallest), and long and short are presented by an assortment of cheery insects marching through a colorful environment of flowers and grass. Some of the insects, such as a ladybug, are easily identifiable, while others are more fanciful. A spacious format with large print and brief text gives Keller's expressive creatures lots of space to enliven the concepts. A double-page section of suggested activities for adults to share with children is included. Early childhood teachers and parents will all find this a useful book, and youngsters will be attracted to the lively illustrations. A good choice to pair with Bruce McMillan's Super, Super, Superwords (Lothrop, 1989).?Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ

Book Description

The bugs are on parade. One is big, the next is bigger, and the next is the biggest bug of all. Learning how to compare and contrast sizes is an important early math skill and one of the most basic forms of mathematical reasoning. In The Best Bug Parade children are introduced to this concept by some goofy-looking bugs who form a parade. Author Stuart J. Murphy and illustrator Holly Keller have made comparing sizes an enjoyable activity for the very youngest math student.
