Summary
When Bear asks Bee to roll down the hill with him, Bee is too busy. Bee is too busy to lie in the sun and splash in the water, too. And by the time Bee asks Bear to watch the moon with her, he is too sleepy! Poor Bear. Poor Bee. Nothing is fun without your best friend beside you, but luckily Bee knows just what to do! In this adorable tale, Bear and Bee show that there are many ways of making time to be with those you care about. Stressing the importance of tolerance and consideration, Bear and Bee: Too Busy is a tale that both adults and children will enjoy together.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A fuzzy bear and a buzzy bee cemented their friendship in Bear and Bee (2013) and now they have got to make their relationship a priority. On the opening spread, Bear gleefully rolls down a lush green hill (Wheeeeee!) and then invites Bee to join him: Come and roll down the hill with me. You will love it! But Bee is too busy watering flowers for such frivolity. Then Bear swings from a tree and splashes in a pond, but Bee is always too busy to play. (Bear's facial expressions upon being rejected are priceless.) Eventually, Bear goes to sleep, the moon comes out, and now Bee wants to moon gaze with Bear. But Bear is content snoozing. The trick is to come up with an activity that they both enjoy, and while reclining in the pond and admiring the moon, the two friends find shared happiness. The text includes fun words like whoopee and hooray and repeats sweet phrases which, along with Ruzzier's bold graphic art, makes this picture book a delightful choice for friendship-themed storytimes.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this sequel to 2013's Bear and Bee, the two friends find themselves at odds. During the day, Bee is too busy to roll down hills, climb trees, or splash in the pond with Bear, and at night, Bear is "too busy sleeping to look at the moon" with Bee. They decide to meet in the middle, luxuriating in the moonlight from the comfort of the pond, though even this solution seems to favor persnickety Bee, since Bear is forced to pull an all-nighter. But while Bee and Bear's friendship feels lopsided, Bear's loyalty and ability to enjoy simple pleasures shine through in Ruzzier's sympathetic illustrations of this duo's ups and downs. Ages 3-5.
