Illustrated by Eugene Ruble
Little Bug by Karin Larson is a story about a little bug with persistence to spare! He seeks out a friend, a morsel of food, a drink of water, a place with shade, a place to climb, a puddle to bathe in—you name it. He doesn’t really find what he’s looking, except for some peace and quiet at the end of the day, but he’s willing to go looking for it all again tomorrow. Turns out this little guy has patience as well as persistence. He doesn’t lose it when he’s unsuccessful this time around, he will just keep trying.
This is also an excellent story for young readers to learn prepositions, antonyms and expand their vocabulary.
I love the zany illustrations by Eugene Ruble. His style is unique and brings us a truly madcap character. Little Bug is an excellent read aloud story and highly recommended for early readers (ages 7-10). A terrific book to add to any school, public or private library!
