Pick a book. Grow a Reader!



"This rollicking collection... will have children giggling and enjoying reading success. " -- Kirkus Review

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 have some hysterical ideas for an adventurous day on the pond -- such as going on a search for treasure and a wacky new version of hide-and-seek. Unfortunately, their best pal Froggy wants no part. Will Bumble and Bee's contagious energy be enough to tempt Froggy into joining them for a day of fun and games?

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
