I'm surprised not to see a description posted on this book. It is a great book for ages 4 to 6. With a sweet story line that teaches children to trust themselves. A teaching for life, that's for sure.

The book also has a unique exercise for parents and children to do together. It’s great at creating a bond with the child and to take the teaching of the book further.

Doing something for the first time is scary for children! Even for adults it can be intimidating! But it’s our job to teach and empower our children to trust themselves to try and succeed at new things. Emma the Bumble Bee is a great book that will help little ones learn the importance of this and see that they are not alone.

Emma is a cute little bee! My four year old daughter Paige immediately commented on the flowers on her head and how pretty she was! While illustrations are meant to graphica

This picture book is a beautiful and simple fable meant to show young children that sometimes the way they feel make things appear harder than they actually are and that by learning to trust themselves they can accomplish what they put their minds and energy towards..
The exercise at the end of the story is meant as a fun guide to help suppor

What I like about this book is how through the story we are shown how different things are when we learn to and actually trust ourselves. Many times our perception of things is not necessarily the reality.

This was definitely insightful!

Great picture book. I like the message. Perhaps we should all learn from this and put it into practice more often.
