Bugs for Lunch (Guided Reading level J, DRA level 16, Kindergarten through 2nd grade)
Bugs for Lunch
by Margery Facklam
If your lunch was a bug, Who could you be? Maybe a nuthatch At work in a tree . . .
In snappy, lilting rhymes, Margery Facklam - the award-winning author of more than thirty books for children - introduces some of the many creatures that happily feast on kids' favorite yuck-inducing creepy-crawlies. A bat, a gecko, a mouse, a toad, a trout, and a bear are among the diners represented, along with a Venus flytrap and some surprise guests: humans!
Long's large, dramatic pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations abound with life, realistically depicting protagonists on both sides of the lunch experience. Even her margins crawl with a detailed and colorful assortment of insect passersby. Extending the usefulness of this inviting picture book, final pages provide information on each animal (and person) and its preferred bug meal.
