Reviews - What do customers think about The Spider and the Bee?

Helping the Very Young Child Understand Divorce  Mar 7, 2002
On first glance, this looks like another cute picture book for preschoolers. If I had randomly run across it on some children�s bookshelf, I might not have even opened it. That would have been my loss.

On each page there is a simple, but compelling drawing on one side with a sentence of text on the facing page. A spider and a bee fall in love and marry. For the first year, they get along well. As time goes on, their inborn differences become problematic. The bee tries to please the spider with things that might please another bee. They disagree about where they should live. Sadly, they realize that they must live apart. After their sad parting, each is able to live happily in his or her own natural setting.

Many books about separation and divorce may be too complex or threatening for the preschool child. This book goes right to the heart of the matter in a way that a young child can understand. Sometimes it is no one�s fault. Two people may simply be incompatible and may need to build separate lives.
