Buzzy the Bumblebee


Title: Buzzy the Bumblebee
Author: Denise Brennan-Nelson
ISBN: 9781585361663

Classification: fiction
Themes: self belief

What's it about?
This is a story about a bumblebee who discovers a shocking truth - a bumblebee is not meant to be able to fly! After flying his whole life Buzzy now finds himself grounded and unable to even get lift-off. He sets off on a journey of self-discovery.

Embrace
This story is written with rhyming paragraphs which makes it a fun read. It is well paced and works well as a story to predict "what might happen next". It has gorgeous illustrations that depict the written text well. The book has a fitting conclusion.

Beware
As much as I love rhyming books it does mean that the story drags a little here and there. Some of the paragraphs appear "squished" to the side

My Recommendation...

Buy It
This is an enchanting story that would work well at the beginning of the year to set up the types of positive behaviours you would like to see.
