Finding friends isn’t easy when no one can find you!

One, two, three. One, two three.

Why won’t someone play with me?

Twig is a stick insect, long and thin like the twig of a tree. It’s her first day at Bug School, where she hopes to learn lots and make new friends. But no one will talk to her . . . and no one will play with her at lunch. No one notices her at all — not even her teacher Miss Orb. Perhaps she’s blending in with the branches a little too well! Finally, Twig speaks up for herself and Miss Orb comes up with a plan to help Twig stand out.

Aura Parker’s winsome illustrations are a pure delight. Kids of all ages will pore over the adorable details and enjoy the numbers and counting elements throughout the story. The endpapers are a delight and each includes a search-and-find activity.
