Yes, "Fuzzy Bee and Friends" does taste pretty good and makes a satisfying crinkling noise when you grab it, but in terms of content? Big Fail!

Fuzzy Bee, the title character, never appears beyond the front cover. The rhyme syncopation is awkward, and the biology is totally inaccurate. Spiders don't get dizzy from spinning, dragon flies are not tame, and I'm pretty sure that baby worms loathe hot days.

"Squishy Turtle and Friends" has many of the same problems -- why are all sea creatures male? --

Update 2/2011: COMPLETE TRAVESTY!!!!! My friend Graciela has this book too, and her edition has two extra pages in it that mine doesn't have!! WTF?!?! I adore this book, and now it turns out I've been cheated out of the fly and spider pages! It's like when my dad realized that for years, he'd been reading an abridged version of The Count of Monte Cristo, which is his favorite book of all time. (As an aside, he has just listened to all 45 hours of The Count on his iPod. I hope I'll grow up to be ...more

Summary: This is a cloth book. This book shows different animals. It shows just the basic picture of the insect and then says the word of the insect. They go through bumblebee, butterfly, worm, snail, ladybug, dragonfly, and beetle. It is very colorful and easy to hold.
Personal Reaction: I think this is a good book for the child to see the different bugs and easy for the child to hold. The pictures are basic and colorful for the child to look at

This is a perfectly charming baby book that can be felt, bitten, played with, slobbered on, and washed. We meet bee, lady bug, snail, beetle, dragon fly, worm, and butterfly - all with fuzz to feel or wings to pull on. Has a little velcro tab to keep it closed when not being "read". Also makes very inviting krinkly noises. Not a bath book. Cloth.

My son loved this when he was around 5-11 months old. He liked the crackly cover and the bug wings. After that, though, he moved quickly to board books and regular "first reader" type books. He LOVES turning pages. I would recommend this for infants and young toddlers.

Look. If you're going to call the book "Fuzzy Bee and Friends," Fuzzy Bee should be *in* the book. You can't just put him on the cover and never mention him again. I mean, what if they'd done that with Harry Potter?

My daughter adores this book - it gives her something to look at and touch. It's come to be among her favourite toys.

Sarah and Yongping gave me this book at the baby shower. Mommy always takes my hand and rubs it on the pages so I can feel the different textures. I like books I can touch.

I haven't been able to read all the words in this book yet, but the pictures are great, feel nice, and the pages taste and sound interesting.

Oh this was a favorite at our house too. You'll be amazed how many times such a little book can surprise and delight on one car trip!

Fun crinkle book, save for the preposterous self-confidence of the butterfly
