Bear and Bee Too Busy by Sergio Ruzzier is a friendship story. Bee is too busy to roll down the hill, splash in the pond, or climb a tree. When Bee is not busy, Bear is asleep. This pair finally find a time and place to do something together.
This title could easily work as an early reader. The art was created with pen and ink on Arches paper with digital coloring. The cartoon illustrations perfectly fit the characters of these two friends. Bear is so cute in his sandals, and bee is of course the more industrious one. Children will love getting to know Bear and Bee.
