Awsome!


(5 stars)

This is a wonderful story about a young bee discovering the wonders of life. She encounters many fellow insects and is loyal to her people to the end.

I like this one!


(5 stars)

This is really really good. It's the first book I ever read - I should say heard - that is told from the point of view of an insect, albeit a personified insect. And Betsie Bush is a superb reader. I'm surprised that no one has reviewed it before. A bee was buzzing around my head yesterday so I talked to it. I talked to it like I was talking to little Maya. I called it Maya and "little girl" - and the bee seemed to like it! So maybe now I can make friends with bees as well as moths (yup, moths)! :)

Good Tale on all Matters


(5 stars)

I enjoy hearing Maya's adventures very much. Comprehending the fable is easy, with handsome wisdom the result.
