Friends come in all shapes and sizes. While one friend finds himself completely transformed after a long snooze, the other sticks to his routine and feels that he has missed out on something special. In the end, however, they discover that one could not have survived without the other.

From a bug’s eye view, we learn allitera-tion and action verbs as we buzz with the bees, slither with the snails, and glow with the fireflies. In the back, there is a section of fun and educational facts about each insect.
