Big Bug by Henry Cole - ESSENTIAL

Cole, Henry  Big Bug  Little Simon, 2014.  PICTURE BOOK  $14.99  Content: G.   

This is an adorable book that starts with a lady bug on a leaf.  The lady bug is big, but in the next picture the lady bug is little and the leaf is big.  The next page shows the leaf as little and a flower that is big.  The book continues in this way until the sky is big and the farm is little.  Then the perspective reverses back down to the lady bug.   

The pictures are bright and interesting.  This book is a good lesson on the concept of perspective in the simplest terms.  Each page has between two-four words that label the size (little or big) and the object (flower or farm) but it manages to tell a story.  This book is fantastic.   

PREK, EL (K-3)-ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
