Buzzy the bumblebee by denise brennan nelson
Buzzy the Bumblebee by Denise Brennan-NelsonI absolutely LOVE this book! Its the story of a bumblebee who doesnt believe he can fly anymore because he reads that bumblebees werent meant to fly. I cant tell you the rest of the plot because it would spoil it; however, I can say there are many good themes that run through the book: Buzzy is a reader and that sets a good literacy example for young children, its okay to be scared when one does something for the first time, needing ones family when they feel alone is okay, all problems have solutions, problem-solving is a process, encouragement can be motivating, self-doubt can interfere with success, its important to ignore labels and limits, and belief in oneself leads to success. It is chock full of vivid illustrations that are eye-catching and whimsical. The text also has a rhythm and flow and its rhyming makes it easy for even the youngest children to follow. I read this book to my daughters junior kindergarten class and they absolutely loved it! They sat attentively and eagerly anticipated the outcome. When asked if they got the lesson from the story, a few astute listeners were able to say that you need to ignore things that get you down and believe in yourself. As an educator, former school counselor, and principal I can say that this book should be on every elementary teacher, counselor, and principals shelf!
