Book Details

Bubs the Bumblebee and the Spider's Web

When disaster strikes their home, Bubs the Bumblebee and her family find a new garden to collect pollen and nectar, but they must avoid dangerous predator spiders and their huge webs in this new garden. The Bubs the Bumblebee series (this is the second story) introduces children to nature through the use of amazing color photographs and imaginative stories, focusing on the activities and interactions of Bumblebees, other insects and spiders in gardens. "I want to see more dragon spiders!"- said one awestruck 6 year old when he saw the photographs of spiders in this book. Recommended for children ages 6-10 Book review by Connywithay-bookpleasures: This story is great for an inquisitive child who is not afraid of bugs, insects or spiders and curious about how they live. It is a good educational tool that can be read over and over, verifying how God makes such unique creatures which we tend to ignore and take for granted.
