Children's LiteratureBuzzy Bee was happy to do her bit for the colony until the day a boy laughed at her and called her a foolish worker bee. When Buzzy discovered that her kind "gather all the food, clean the cells, make the honeycomb, take care of the babies, feed the queen, air-condition the hive, and guard against enemies," she was furious! She protested that it was not fair and soon many other worker bees agreed with her. They abandoned the hive, but soon fell into noisy arguments. In desperation, Buzzy returned to her original home to seek sage advice from on older bee. She then realizes the importance of having a leader. A good lesson on teamwork and responsibility comes to a satisfying conclusion. Bold colorful illustrations follow the story that also tells about insect life.
