Baby To Big Kid Online Book Of The Week Club - Bug Buzz Assignment

Welcome to the first week of the Baby To Big Kid Online Book Club, I chose to start with one of my 9 month old's favorite online books. Bug Buzz, you can find this book at Mighty Books, where children can learn to read though free online games, books and puzzles.

The book starts out with a cute musical played by the grasshopper band. It fades into a colorful and beautifully animated Grasshopper talk show with lots of fun facts about grasshoppers! The words at the bottom of the page light up red as they are being read out loud by the grasshoppers in the book. Making it easy to follow along, and a perfect compliment to any baby reading program. The colors are bright and fun, the grasshoppers are funny and up beat. It's easy for me to see why my daughter likes this. I can also see how the story would be a big dry for some children. 

Assignment For This Week: Read the book Bug Buzz by clicking Here or on the link above. Then find a grasshopper (On your nature walk, at a pet store, at the park, etc.) or find some photographs of grasshoppers online! Make sure that while you are reading the online book you point out any words your child may know (if they aren't yet reading or showing signs of reading no worries). Try reading this book a few times. And, don't forget to comment on next weeks review post with how you liked the book as well as how your assigned went! Did your child like the grasshopper book and experience or were grasshoppers a bit "Icky" for them? Next week will be your chance to win!

This Weeks Prize: A Finger Puppet From Carter's Children's Clothing Store! Brand new with tags, and shipped for free. These little finger puppets are regularly $6.99 each! Animal or style chosen at random.
