About the Book-The Very Greedy Bee by Steve Smallman
MINE! That’s what the very greedy bee says to anyone who asks him to share. While all the other bees work hard to clean the hive and make honey, the very greedy bee spends all of his time gobbling pollen and guzzling nectar. One day the very greedy bee finds a meadow full of flowers and decides not to tell anyone. He spends the entire day buzzing from flower to flower until…THUMP. The very greedy bee is so full that he cannot fly! It’s getting dark and he doesn’t know how to get home unless he flies. With the help of some new found friends the very greedy bee is able to return to his hive and has learned that it’s best to work with others and share what you have.
What this book teaches-Generosity
My review of the book:
A story about not wanting to share. When you don’t share friends won’t play with you. When the little bee gets into trouble the other bees stand up for him and help him. He recognizes that he wasn’t very nice to them and they are being so generous to him.
