For Sunny Bee, being truly helpful means going anywhere and everywhere. When his beautiful sunflower friend Myah becomes very ill, Sunny travels to the “far side of the hills” seeking help. Faced with a series of challenges including a raging storm, large spiders, or even the intimidating Grandfather Oak, Sunny’s dedication never wavers! (ages 4 – 8)
I think even an adult could learn a lesson or two from this book. My 7 year old daughters take on this book? “Being different is awesome.”
Sunny Bee finds himself in a dilemma because he’s only a bee and bees use flowers for nectar. He finds himself becoming friends with one flower named Myah. Myah is droopy and wilting from no rain. Sunny Bee sets off to solve the problem of how a bee, who don’t like water, can help save a flower. He’s laughed at and reminded that he’s just a bee, but never gives up.
I loved the lesson from this awesome kids book. Friends are worth putting yourself in a situation that is out of your comfort zone and that just because people don’t always believe in you if you believe in yourself, that’s all,that matters. 5 stars from me and Lu. She loved it.
