A lively story with simple rhyming text and irresistible illustrations, specially written for young children who are learning to read. “I need my sleep tonight,” says Bug. “Tomorrow I start work for Slug.” Bug glugs hot chocolate from a mug. Then snuggles up inside his rug. Simple, rhyming text helps children to develop essential language and early reading skills, and there are guidance notes for parents at the back of the book.
