Colors: A Bugs Pop-up Concept Book

David A. Carter, Little Simon, $7.99 (16p) ISBN 978-1-4424-0830-2

Carter's bugs are back, this time in celebration of color. Six bugs get their own pop-up spreads, while a spare rhyme scurries throughout: "Red Bug/ Yellow bug/ Orange Bug/ And Blue/ Green Bug/ Purple Bug/ Bugs of/ every hue." The colorful bugs—which include a praying mantis and (technicalities aside) a spider—form a squiggly rainbow on the final spread. It's a familiar formula, but still likely to delight. Available simultaneously: Up & Down. Ages 1–5. (Dec.)
