Bubs the Bumble Bee and The Spider’s Web
By Joyce Graham Fogwill
The author, who is a retired science teacher uses the character of Bubs the Bumblebee and pictures of real bumblebees and spiders to teach kids about these two facets of nature. Bubs is flying around and spies some spider webs and steers clear because he knows if he is caught that will be the end of Bubs. The story is simple but teaches a lot about the two creatures and how they are not really compatible with each other. “Bubs the Bumble bee and The Spider’s Web is a very effective way for children 6 to 10 to learn more about some of the things around them instead of having to study from a very dry textbook.
