Super cute and funny! Bumble and Bee are best friends, along with their grumpy friend frog. In this episodic beginning reader, the three friends pose for Best Friend pictures, try to cure Frog of their hiccups, and do a waggle dance (like bees do). With graphic novel-like panels and bright colorful illustrations, this is an eye-catching easy reader that kids will gravitate towards. More stories about Bee and Bumble are coming in 2020.

We love the @scholasticinc Acron line of early readers! “Don’t Worry, Bee Happy” by Ross Burach is another hit! Fun and hilarious, this book includes three short stories in comic strip form: Best Friends Picture Day, A Bad Case of the Hiccups, and The Waggle Dance. The stories all feature Bumble and Bee and their grumpy friend Froggy. This book is written for 4-6 year-olds and my 5-year-old loved it. It will be on sale soon – look for this on December 29, 2019.

Thanks to

Early reader graphic-style short chapters that is sure to delight kids just getting the hang of reading. Lots of good visual clues and color-coded speech bubbles.

Grumpy frog is a nice, if familiar sort of foil for the two bees' goofy enthusiasms and the jokes are just right for young readers. I especially love the Hiccup story ;-) and the waggle dance is of course a real feature of honeybees so that was fun too.

Back matter includes instructions on how to draw Froggy and writing prompts.

A fun,

Bright and colorful illustrations really bring this book alive. It is comprised of 3 very short stories about friends Bumble and Bee and their much-less enthusiastic friend, Froggy. The stories move quickly with simple words to keep young listeners or early readers engaged in the storylines. This is a fun and easy book to entice young children. It is quite silly at times which they will also enjoy.

Yet another children’s book where the humor is supposed to be derived from the opposite combination of a grumpy/surly/depressed character and bubbly friends. To say this is my favorite of the bunch isn’t saying much, but I did think there were some cute moments which show at least a little depth to Froggy’s character.

From the author of Truck Full of Ducks and The Very Impatient Caterpillar! The humor is really funny and I love the concept of early reader graphic novels! Way to go, Scholastic!

*Read the ARC*

Didn’t mean to have all exclamation marks so here’s a sentence with a period to show I’m aware but making stylistic choices.

The bees and Froggy are best friends.
This book includes three short stories about their friendship.
First in the series and sets out the three main characters.
Plenty of humor for young readers.

This brightly illustrated little book is about two bees and a frog who are friends. The bees are busy and like to tease the frog who likes to be quiet on the pond. Three funny short stories or chapters: Best Friends Picture Day; A Bad Case of the Hiccups; The Waggle Dance.

This beginning reader is super cute! Love that the author/illustrator included directions in the back on how to draw Frog.

Learning to draw Froggy and answering the questions at the end so you can write and draw your own story is neat.

Bumble and Bee are bright and cheerful and love to have fun. Their friend Froggy is the opposite, rather grumpy. In the first story, Bumble and Bee want to take a picture of all three of them, but Froggy refuses to smile. The second story involves Bumble and Bee trying to cure Froggy of the hiccups, with rather amusing results (although I'm sure Froggy did not find it funny). And in the third story, Bumble and Bee try to get Froggy to Waggle Dance. I enjoyed this book, the characters make great ...more
