The Bugville Critters stories address all the major issues of growing up and are designed to appeal to the ever-growing interests of children three to eight years old. The stories combine facts about our natural world with fictional stories that instruct and entertain.
Robert Stanek wrote The Bugville Critters books as bedtime stories for his children. His children enjoyed the stories so much that they urged him to bring them to life for other children to enjoy.
This production, great for younger listeners, includes four Stanek favorites: Have Trouble at School, Break Their Bad Habits, Stay After School, and Have a Bad Day.
In the first, Lass Ladybug is having trouble at school. She sometimes feels that she's not as smart as the other bugs, until her mom and dad talk to her about how bugs are all different.
In the second, bad behavior gets the best of the Bugville Critters. They forget their manners, do things they shouldn't, and get into trouble. It is up to a most unlikely bug to show them the right way to behave.
In the third, Lass Ladybug has to stay after school, but she doesn't want to. She'd rather go outside and play with her friends. She is surprised when she has fun and makes a new best friend.
In the fourth, Lass Ladybug has a bad day. Her friends don't want to play with her, and she feels so sad and lonely. Things get even worse when she encounters a stranger. But her bad day does have a bright spot - you'll see.
What are you waiting for? Join us on a journey to Bugville where you'll meet Lass Ladybug and all her friends.
We've been reading the bugville critters stories since last year and were delighted to find the books on Audible. While obviously a favorite of our youngest, my older children have listened as well and enjoyed the stories. Buster and Lass are fun characters and Stanek is one of those rare authors who has an amazing imagination and is able to share it with others with extraordinayr skill.
