This is a classic translated for new readers young and old. A little bug has a light in his butt but feels left out, and it takes his bug friends to put the spotlight on a new subject old as tomorrow's sunrise: that we all have our own light to shine. That is how I see it, so see what you think!
I enjoyed this story of the little bug who wasn't sure what kind of bug he was. The bumblebee only told him how to be a bumble debut the spider helped him to become a great bug of his own. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is lovely!
I read this to my daughter at the library last week and she really enjoyed it. Its all about the poor little squeegy bug who doesn't feel special and doesn't seem to know what kind of bug it is or should be. He meets the bee and thinks he should be like him and then meets the spider who then gives him a gift and in doing so he finds out what a special little bug he really is!
My almost 2-year-old loved this book today. She loved the pictures and held still for the story very well. It's about a bug who wants to be a bumblebee because he think that's a cool bug. It turns out to be a fable of how the firefly came to exist. Cute illustrations too.
