Bee On, Buzz Off

A Story About Learning to Focus and Stay on Task


SKU: D305-Net

Freddie, our lovable fly, is tappin’ and flappin’ his way to trouble. He whirls around to and fro, buzzing from one distraction to another. Is it any wonder he forgets his lunch, fails his spelling test and almost leaves the house semi-undressed? Freddie is a go-go-go kind of guy who has no time to listen, focus or pay attention. He moves so quickly he forgets things–but it’s not his fault; there are just too many distractions.

At school, his lack of concentration causes a real fright when he misses his teacher’s instructions and finds himself lost and alone at the zoo. Fortunately, a Bumble Guide who works at the zoo is there to help Freddie learn how to turn his BEE on and his BUZZ off. Will getting lost be the scare Freddie needs to finally take action and learn how to concentrate?
