“Very Like a Star” is one of my favorite Children’s books ever. It’s the story of a little honeybee named Rigel that works very hard, minds her own business (opposed to gossiping) and keeps doing the right thing every day, over and over again.
Rigel is not a popular honeybee and doubts herself because she’s not. However, Rigel later learns she is named after a star, and shines brightly even when her peers are doing not-so-great things like partying when they should be collecting nectar so the hive will have plenty of nectar for the winter.
In addition to diligence, this book teaches responsibility, helpfulness and humility. The book has beautiful art and is great for kids 4 and up. Click here or on the image to snag a copy from Amazon.com.
