Bedtime Story: The Grumble Bee by Kyle Mewburn

Read for: Children's Book Challenge
Synopsis: "Winter is coming and everybee is busily gathering pollen. But poor Glib always gets left behind. When he finally catches up, everybee laughs at him. So Glib flies off on his own ... and discovers a secret garden bursting with flowers. Will he be able to save the hive?

On sunny days, especially in spring, Marion and I love to sit on our verandah with a cold drink, listening to the creek chuckling and watching the fantails fluttering through the blossoms. But if you listen closely, you can hear another sound, too. The busy buzzing of bees . Do they ever sit around just enjoying the sunshine? And what if there was a bee who was a bit, well, grumbly. Not a bumblebee, but a grumblebee?"

My Review: This was a rather long children's book, Munchkin didn't have the patience to sit through it all at once, especially around bedtime. It did have some cute illustrations and a great message about not teasing others and also about team work and keeping secrets. While those are great messages for kids to learn, it didn't really get it across because there was just too much going on, at least for Munchkin.
My Rating: This one just had too much going on for a young reader.  Munchkin really loves story time and is pretty tolerant of longer books but was bored with this one.  We give it a rating of One Paw and a Stump Wag.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
