“I loved this book and a lot had to do with the absolutely fantastic illustrations! Mark Wayne Adams knows how to capture each scene so beautifully, from the fun of the birthday party, to the antics of the family cat and bird begging Little Miss Grubby Toes not to do it, to the utter devastation of the kitchen when the inevitable happens. These images alone tell the story to the youngster being read to or reading on their own, and there is so much detail as well for young readers to discover with each rereading of this cautionary tale. The themes are so naturally woven into the tale that youngsters will learn what to do and what not to do as they progress through the story. There is also a nice moment of saying sorry when you have done something wrong and caused a whole lot of inconvenience for others, and how to make it better. Another salutary lesson is keeping a promise made to your parents and listening to your parents, who are making rules to protect you.”—Fiona Ingram, Reviewer, Readers' Favorite
“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.
