Book: Snug Bug
Author: Cathy and Mark Dubowski
Year Published: 1995
Genre: First grade reader
Overall Rating: 3 stars
Target Audience: Little kids
Setting: A little bug gets ready for bed just like a small child.
Characters: A bug and his mother.
Plot: The mom bug tries to get the kid bug ready for bed, but he resists, much like a normal human child.
Thoughts: This book is kind of cute. However, it does introduce some elements that I don’t really like in books, such as giving the kids ideas for ways to rebel at bed time and the idea that there may be scary things in your bedroom. I don’t think a child needs to learn fear from a bedtime story, or even a reader that she reads in school.
