There is a HEA, but not after multiple attempts by Sunny and some little bit scary adventures he gets into with other creatures he encounters. The story definitely keeps your interest. The pictures are gorgeous and colorful. This is a very inviting book.
It also has some meaningful lessons for a child. The importance of friends, trying to do good for others, perseverance.
Unfortunately, sometimes in real life, no matter what we do, the sick friend or relative won't recover. But that's a topic for another book. This book is inspiring just the way it is.
Sunny Bee does this and more. In doing so he teaches useful lessons in friendship, confidence, kindness, and faith to both young and adult readers.
Sunny loves his best friend Myah, the sunflower. When the beautiful flower starts wilting under the hot sun, Sunny is worried enough to fly off in search of precious water. A few droplets from the nearby lake isn't enough to quench her thirst. This prompts him to set off on a journey to get her more water. His bee friends refuse to help him, and a frog that he encounters on the trip mocks his efforts. Undeterred he carries on, and meets up with a knowledgeable turtle who helps him seek Grandfather Oak.
Does he meet the Great Oak tree and is his little wish granted? Will his friend fade away before he returns or will he enjoy a potluck dinner? The book chronicles his journey and adventures with beautiful illustrations and expressive words. Life's lessons aren't preached out loud but subtly brought forward through puny Sunny and his great deeds.
The illustrations are vibrant, colorful and perfect for a children's book. I love the fact that the author, James Edwards, frequently uses multisyllabic words - slightly difficult for younger kids - rather than keep the narration simple. My four-year-old nephew loves to learn new words and their meanings, and I presume; so do other kids.
There is enough depth in the short tale to keep little ones engrossed. The five star says it all. This book is like candy - short and sweet.
Not only is the story catchy, but the illustrations are amazing. Even using an e-reader, the colors pop from the screen and are very pleasing to the eye. I have already recommended this book to a friend with several young children, because it can also be used in a homeschooling setting as well.
With all of the self-published children's books on the market today, it's good to find a gem that's well written, well edited, and well illustrated.
