Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps On A Bee
Written by Eddie Price
Little Miss Grubby Toes is a delightful tale about a little girl that loves to go barefoot. She love the feel of mud between her toes. She would run and play and jump all without her shoes. One particularly pretty day when she asked to go outside her mother told her not to take her shoes off because she might be stung by a bee. Little Miss Grubby Toes promised but once outside it was just too tempting. She took her shoes off and began to play. You can guess what happened next.
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. Award winning author, publisher and artist Mark Wayne Adams is the illustrator. He is originally from Dawson Springs, KY. Award winning author, Eddie Price from Hawesville, KY, penned this adorable tale. The next book in this series will be Little Miss Grubby Toes Plays with Fire. This series is sure to bring smiles and giggles to both young and old.
Little Miss Grubby Toes--a bee-utiful story for young and old.

Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee, by Eddie Price is sheer delight. 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. Mr. Price is a retired educator and an excellent story-teller.
Parents, teacher and even school librarians will appreciate LMGYSOAB because it provides the opportunity to teach children about being careful as they grow up and go through their day. There are helpful pauses in the story for teachable moments for child and adult. I think this is just the beginning. I predict more Little Miss Grubby Toes tales. The art work is dynamic and beautiful too!
