"Price’s program will feature a life-size Little Miss Grubby Toes puppet who is cranky and definitely down on bees. She sings, argues, and, in the end, learns a little bit about the role that bees play in the scheme of life."—Bee Lines, the state Apiarist newsletter, Kentucky Beekeepers Association
“I loved the expressions on the little miss and her animal friends' faces, especially when she's considering taking off those shoes. The looks of dismay and concern on the animals' faces are priceless. I also enjoyed the educational aspect of the tale which dealt with the steps honeybees take to produce honey, and the real dangers that severely allergic people face when stung by bees. Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee! is recommended.”
I love this book. It is the first in what promises to be a great new series. This tale teaches there are consequences to our actions. It also provides an educational quality in teaching about bees. At the end of the book there are discussion questions and ten words to find in the story making this a great teaching resource for educators. There is also a puzzle/ mystery where you try to guess Little Miss Grubby Toes’ real name. The illustrations are beautifully done.
Review by Debra Gaynor for VINE VOICE
On a child's level it is a captivating story easily related to. No child wants to step on a bee! Eddie Price has come forward with another excellent book, this one for children and parents of children. Parents, teachers and even school librarians will appreciate Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee!
As a mother of two very mischievous toddlers, I loved this book. All it took was one reading with my children session to drive home the importance of wearing shoes, especially while running about outside. Now, I just need to say "Ms. Grubby Toes" and the kids put on their shoes before stepping out. It worked like a charm and to those parents struggling to talk logic with their toddler, this book could surely help.
