Received Readers' Favorite 5-star review. This story was originally published in "Ladybug" and is based on a true event witnessed in nature. Now with all-new illustrations.  One day, tiny Arthur the Beetle finds a large, juicy berry, big enough to feed him for a week. Excited by his discovery, he begins pushing it home, planning how much he is going to like eating the berry. Then suddenly, his berry gets stuck, and Arthur the Beetle has to figure out how to free it. Sometimes approaching a problem straight ahead just will not work. There are times when a problem can only be resolved by backing off, and approaching it from a new direction. This is a difficult life lesson for most children to learn, but "The Beetle and the Berry" makes this concept easy for children to understand. Appropriate for ages 3-6. (Cindy Penn contributed to this description.) Children will root for the tiny beetle, and, without knowing it, will be learning problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
