Storytime at the Store: Kate Narita:100 Bugs!

Ms. Narita's clever rhyming text brings little explorers 10 different ways to count to 10, using 10 different kinds of bugs to get all the way to 100 by the end of their adventure. ​​​​​​ Join us for a wonderful storytime for ages 3 and up!

How many bugs can you count? From walking sticks to spittlebugs, dragonflies to katydids, discovering 10 bugs at a time, you just might see 100 bugs! With Suzanne Kaufman's bright, whimsical illustrations and Kate Narita's clever rhyming text, 100 Bugs! is part look-and-find, part learning experience, and all kinds of fun.


"In this cheerful outing, two sibling 'explorers' wake up with the sun to count bugs over the course of a day on their busy farm. As the brother and sister traipse through a meadow and barnyard with a magnifying glass and a butterfly net, Narita introduces insect varieties in upbeat rhymes . . . Kaufman's collage-art spreads will keep readers invested." --Publishers Weekly
