Quote from Readers
"Smugg, the Bug carries a really big message for young and old. We all struggle with our feelings about differences. This little treasure helps us find the real truth that differences should be celebrated. I’m putting a copy in our church library. " --Maida McCormack
"We gave a copy of Me & Smugg, the Bug to our great-grandson for Christmas. Although he's not quite a year old, his mother has been reading it to him. We want him to learn about friendship and kindness because it's never too early to teach that to a child--and it's a good reminder for adults too!"
--Dean & Nancy Wilson
Me & Smugg, the Bug features a little red bug who has trouble finding friends and a boy whose curious and open-minded nature make him a perfect fit for an Unlikely Friendship. Through a series of good deeds on the boy's part, they become fast friends and even the boy's mom and sister agree that Smugg is "funny and cute and not at all rude."
The book can be read to and by children ages 2-6 and as a bonus, discussion questions are included for parents and teachers.
The messages of friendship and diversity, especially pertaining to those appearing different from ourselves, are the primary themes carried through June’s new children’s book.
The final verse in the story summarizes the lesson:
"When you get to know someone
who's not like you,
you may make a new friend
and they'll make one, too."
