Ladybug Picture Book For Kids To Learn Fun Facts About Ladybugs (The Nature´s Amazing Series 1)
There is a fair bit of language that some parents would object to. This caterpillar is often reminded that he is too fat to fly. So that poses a few challenges to parents like myself who are trying to instill healthy body images as well as using respectful words with others in our children. I have dealt with this book in two ways. First by saying that the caterpillar is getting fat. That he will be able to sleep for a long time in his chrysalis and needs that fat to live. The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle is more than a cute book about a crabby bug. The Lady bug is looking for a fight.
I loved using this book to teach telling time, as there is a picture of an analog clock on each page. I would use a play clock and as I read each page ask one child to come and set our classroom clock. No animal takes her up on her offer. You can spin that into a great lesson about not giving into people who are trying to pick fights. We have the board book edition and what I love about it, is that the spider web in it is raised and offers a sensory element to reading the story.
This is a story of hard work, persistence and also helps reinforce animal sounds. Perfect for toddlers!www.hiphopenation.com/mu-plugins/ksat/parents-guide-teenage-dating.php
Beetles & Ladybugs - Kids: Books
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is a classic, that most preschool teachers like myself can recite from memory. It really is a fantastic book. But it is also useful for a lesson about the day of the week and healthy eating! Not so much because of the story but because the board book version has flashing lights at the end! The story is all about a firefly looking for another firefly but mistaking all different light for a friend.
The text is the right length for little guys but not boring for older kids. I need to mention the little lights are really quite magical in a dark bedroom. Whenever I read it to children and it was a classroom favorite too I would wiggle my shoulders like I was trying to rub my wings together just like the cricket. Kids latched on to that and I loved seeing them so engaged by the repetitive but never boring book. I thought that seeing 12 little 3-year-olds wiggling was precious but one little 3-year-old is pretty cute doing it too!
Diary of a Spider by Doreen Cronin is a very clever book with some pretty funny bits of humor. Older preschoolers will love it. Beetle Bop by Denise Fleming is a beautifully illustrated book with a melodic rhyming text and fantastic descriptive words. So feet, birds, and lizards all seem huge to the reader.
They start to see what it might be like to be so small! I always grab these books at garage sales and thrift stores. In this edition, you follow a classroom of students observing a caterpillar as it metamorphosis into a butterfly. A classic spring activity for preschool age children to discover and learn about life cycles. Also a perfect match for your own Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden which I highly recommend and will be doing this year with my son.
Reading nonfiction with your preschoolers is important as it teaches them seamlessly that writing and reading is not just for stories but for information too. The text is simple and flows well. However, the value is in the illustrations. They cover all sorts of bugs and are so bright that they will appeal to your child! Beetle McGrady Eats Bugs! Beetle McGrady wants to be a fearless pioneer and she sets out to prove that by eating an ant. I liked how Beetle was disappointed in herself and instead of continuing to sulk when an opportunity to try again arose, she took it.
Two Bad Ants by Chris Van Allsburg is a very interesting story of two ants who decide not to return to the colony and hang out in a sugar bowl eating instead. Of course, nothing is as it seems and they have quite an adventure trying to avoid all the dangers of a kitchen. This is a cute book for preschoolers. They will love trying to guess what each new adventure the ants face really are… They include a toaster, hot coffee, and an electrical outlet.
Buzz by Eileen Spinelli is a really sweet tale about a little bee who loves everything about being a bee, especially flying! When she finds out that bees should actually not be able to fly? She lost the confidence in herself and her favorite thing about being a bee. Luckily that is not where this adorable tale ends and your children will love it. My son came running into the kitchen where I was reading this to my daughter who screamed at me until I let her hold the book so she could touch the adorable little bee. I Love Bugs!
It is listed as fiction but I would consider it as non fiction. It is really hard to find simple, short books that include facts and this one is perfect.

This book is one in a series of books that is written to explain the appearance, habits, and life cycle of bugs. The book is told from the perspective of a ladybug who is talking to the human children who are reading the book. This book does an excellent job, in my opinion, of explaining how a ladybug starts life as an egg and continues until old age without belaboring scientific terms and points but still provides information for the youngest readers. A kindergarten student should be able to re This book is one in a series of books that is written to explain the appearance, habits, and life cycle of bugs.
A kindergarten student should be able to read this book, but it works from a comprehension standpoint for a preschooler. The pictures are simple and easy understand. Oct 14, Samantha Catalano rated it it was amazing Shelves: exploring-assignment. I learned so much by reading this book! What a great book to read when doing science!
For the size book that it is, it explains a lot about ladybugs that I never knew before. At the end, it ties the whole thing back to the reader, who has to figure out if they fit the description of a ladybug. Instead, through the depiction of multiple diverse families, we conclude that we are human beings instead.
Written by Judy Allen, illustrated by Tudor Humpries. Published by Kingfisher Publications, copyright Grade Level: 1st and up This story leads children through the life of a ladybug starting from the egg as if the reader was a ladybug.
