Honeybees and Frenemies

(3) 4-6 Twelve-year-old Flor reluctantly agrees to participate in her hometown's Honey Festival pageant, competing alongside her former-friend-turned-enemy, Candice. Despite some family drama, it isn't the terrible summer Flor imagined; an elderly townsperson teaches her how to "bee beard" for her pageant talent, and she and Candice find common ground. This sweet and gentle story's quirky bee theme allows for the inclusion of some fascinating bee facts.
