Overview

An anti-bullying message of tolerance and teamwork woven into a kid-friendly explanation of insects' role in nature

Little Spider lives a peaceful life in a peaceful corner of the garden. Every day, she is soothed by the gentle sounds of the other creatures around her. But every day, Bossy Bee arrives to shatter the peace and quiet. Bossy Bee has no time for anyone else. She thinks she is the most important and busiest creature in the garden. But then the others play a trick on her, and she comes to see that the other garden creatures also have useful jobs.

Reviews

"A bossypants bee learns a lesson about the value of the contributions of others... Useful information and important insight delivered in mediocre verse and via gender stereotype." —Kirkus Reviews
