Some Bugs by Andrea DiTerlizzi and illustrated by Brendan Wenzel (Beach Lane Books, 2014) is a simple rhyme for young kids about different kinds of bugs. Paired with the rhyme are collage-like illustrations created with “everything imaginable.” (See the note on the last page.) Crayon, pencils, watercolor, and collage make our backyard world in to a multi-colored wonderland. The simple rhymes and the inviting, colorful illustrations make this a masterpiece book. Bugs have never been this cute! The last page spread labels the bugs that appeared in the book.
