almost picked this book up today based on all the positive reviews out there. Stopped by my local B&N today to get it. Luckily, I flipped through it a bit first. Look, I know it's a great book, BUT I do not teach my kids about god since they follow no religion or faith. I give it a 3/5 just because the descriptions from the vendors should pop something in there to let us know it's a god book and not simply a kid's book. I'd have been so embarrassed to have given this as a gift to any of my friends without knowing, too.
What a wonderful gift! Dawn Matheson and Pamela Barcita have presented a beautiful treatise on the gaining of confidence. Mrs. Wagner's garden is the perfect place to learn the ways of nature, through the gifts of a loving God. How many times in our ordinary lives have we felt we were a bumble bee! Given a task much greater than we; for we have wings far too small for our body! This book shows the possibilities for all of us; have faith and soon confidence will follow. I highly recommend this book for the quality of its production and the beauty of its message. Dawn Matheson's story and Pamela Barcita's illustrations hold the readers attention, making each page a delight. Readers, who enjoy Ruby Lee, may also enjoy 'The Ballad of Blue Eagle.' An adventure story about the animals living in Peaceful Valley and how they are protected by Blue Eagle!
I give this book 5 stars (and more). I love this book! Ruby Lee helps Ashley in the right way, and children will learn more about God and that he will be there for them! It is wonderful!!!
When young Ashley is handed a challenge she's sure is beyond her, it's Ruby Lee to the rescue! Ruby Lee's wisdom and common sense are just what Ashley needs to gain confidence and 'bee-lieve' in her God-given abilities. Ruby Lee The Bumble Bee encourages children to meet life's challenges with courage and faith. An inspirational tale with a universal message for people of every faith.
