Description


Bumble and Bee love to have FUN. But their best friend Froggy just wants some peace and quiet!

"Buzz-worthy." --Kirkus Reviews

Pick a book. Grow a Reader!

This series is part of Scholastic's early reader line, Acorn, aimed at children who are learning to read. With easy-to-read text, a short-story format, plenty of humor, and full-color artwork on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and fluency. Acorn books plant a love of reading and help readers grow!

Bumble and Bee love to buzz around the pond and make mischief. Their cranky best friend Froggy prefers the peace and quiet of sitting on a lily pad. They may be an unlikely trio, but no matter what these friends dream up -- from picture day problem-solving to a comical cure for the hiccups -- you can count on hilarious, unexpected FUN!

Praise For…


Praise for Don't Worry, Bee Happy (Bumble and Bee #1):

"The bees' theatrics and infectious enthusiasm pitted against Froggy's deadpan dryness place the trio on par with greats like Bob Shea's Ballet Cat and Sparkles or Mo Willems' Piggie and Gerald... bright colors, expressive characters, and attention to detail will attract multiple reads... Buzz-worthy." --Kirkus Reviews


Praise for Let's Play Make Bee-lieve (Bumble and Bee #2):

"This rollicking collection, presented comics style and with dialogue set mostly in speech balloons, will have readers... eager to join these quirky friends. Simple language and sweet, expressive, humorous illustrations that work perfectly with the text will have children giggling and enjoying reading success. Guaranteed to give emerging readers a buzz." -- Kirkus Review


Praise for The Very Impatient Caterpillar:


* "Chunky characters, livid green and thickly outlined for easy group sharing, and speech-bubble dialogue make this a good choice for read aloud[s] with a histrionic bent... There's definitely some science lurking here among the laughs, and preschool and primary classrooms can jumpstart the life cycle units with this super-charged title." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review


"Will delight fans of Mo Willems's Pigeon series... absolutely charming." -- School Library Journal


"Burach chronicles this miracle of nature in cartoon scenes as loud as the rapid patter... It won't be just adults chuckling at the interactions between the title character and its patiently pupating companions." -- Kirkus Reviews


"Burach's mixed-media digital artwork makes good use of the cartoon style to depict vibrantly colored caterpillars and the protagonist's overwrought emotions. Particularly humorous are the spot drawings showing the inside of the chrysalis, in which he rails against the measured pace of nature... a good choice for science edutainment." --Booklist



Praise for Truck Full of Ducks:


"Burach will have readers quacking up, both with the frequent repetition of the title -- 'Did you call for a truck full of ducks?' is a funny line no matter how often it's read or heard -- and over the illustrations... Sight gags and side comments in the pictures add further yuks to this ducky delight." -- Booklist


"Children will delight in the extreme silliness of this story and will repeatedly pore over the detailed, colorful, and quirky illustrations." -- School Library Journal


"Burach tells his story entirely through dialogue, packing it -- and his exuberant, crayon-like digital illustrations -- with visual jokes [and] an abundance of funny details to discover in each scene." -- Publishers Weekly


"Silly details decorate every spread... Storytime audiences will quack up." -- Kirkus Reviews



Praise for Billy Bloo Is Stuck in Goo:


2018 CBC Children's Choice Book Awards Finalist


"Begs to be read aloud... Gleeful, errant nonsense." -- Kirkus Reviews


"Plenty to linger (and laugh) over." -- Publishers Weekly


"Lots of giggles and goo, and weird characters too, in this rhyming cumulative storytime read-aloud, make this title a must-have for picture book collections." -- School Library Journal
