Monica Dumont takes the reader along with Emma in her book entitled Emma The Bumble Bee. Emma learns that she needs to go and collect pollen for the first time and she is more than a little anxious about this. She isn't certain of what to expect and no one has trained her in what to do or how to collect this pollen. The other bees encourage Emma to go on and say everything will work out fine. She flies to a flower, wondering what she should do next? She gets discouraged and soon falls asleep on the flower. When she wakes up, she feels differently about the flower, the pollen, and about herself. Soon an older bee gives encouragement to Emma as they hadn't left her alone; they were only watching from a distance. Will Emma finally succeed in gathering the pollen?
Author Dumont does a wonderful job of story telling as well as illustrating the book. At the end of the book there are challenges for the reader to work through, as well as a place to write and make this book personal. Following that are some pages for the reader to color. They can color Emma and make her look like they desire. This book would be very enjoyable to read together as parents and child, exploring the excitement that Emma found and and creating ownership of the book.
