Creepy, Crawly-Reuse St

Bobbi Katz. Random House Books for Young Readers, $5.95 (22pp) ISBN 978-0-394-82709-4

The title of this Green Ladder entry of the Learning Ladders series will attract readers like flies to honey. Close-up portraits of all nature of flying, crawling, hopping and slithering creatures draw the eye into a world where stems rise like trees in a forest and cocoons hang like Japanese lanterns from leaves. Facts about life cycles and habits of bugs, frogs, etc.l are briefly, accurately noted, but the bonus is the reusable (though somewhat fragile) stickers that allow children to place their own creepy crawlies within these pages. An information-packed bargain. Ages 3-6. (May)
