A Good Place

We rated this book:


A good place for humans to live is inside a house, where bugs are not welcome. A diverse group of insects are searching for a place where they can all live harmoniously together. Beetle, Dragonfly, Ladybug, and Bee all have a different idea of what a “good place” looks like. Bee believes a good place to live has beautiful flowers, and Dragonfly insists they look for a home with water. Beetle needs a home with dead wood to burrow in, while Ladybug requires leafy greens for her home. After putting in copious amounts of effort, they began to give up on finding a place that would be good for all of them to live together.

Miraculously, Butterfly floats in to tell the friends about where she lives; a place that fits the unique needs of each different insect. They discover a garden created by a bug-loving boy who makes sure he has the perfect environment for every crawly critter. This story promotes friendship and a sense of community between insects that do not typically co-exist peacefully. A Good Place will entertain readers ages three to eight and may even encourage children to create a bug garden of their own.
