Review

This charming little book about a group of bugs who decide to leave the security of their blanket home to explore the big, wide garden and look for new friends – but in the event are too scared to approach any of the creatures they come across – is a great circle time read, especially with nursery cohorts who are about to move to a new room, or make the big transition to school. Beatrice Alemagna’s beautifully textured, collage-style illustrations are sweet and funny, and her message is delivered with clarity and a light touch; there’s a definite sense that, vital though it is to pluck up the courage to reach out the hand of friendship… it’s ok to take your time about it, too.
