The Protector Bugs are an elite group of bugs that protect children from things that go bump in the night. Jared the mosquito and Sheldon the Ant want nothing more than to join the troops and help out. However, three big beetle brothers stand in their way. On the day of the tryouts Jared and Sheldon learn what it really means to be a Protector Bug.
A fun story that highlights the importance of making the right choices and that the right choices can be the hardest. First of all, I love the idea that the bugs we usually perceive as being annoying or hurtful are presented as protectors of children. This is a great way to introduce the importance of bugs to kids. In addition, Jared and Sheldon show qualities of kindness, friendship, determination and sacrifice. Bright, bold and fun pictures will be sure to keep children's attention. While my son was a little too young to grasp the message of the story, this book is perfect for children aged 2-7.
