How a busy bee learns to stop and enjoy the simple things of life. Bizzy Lizzie is the busiest, buzziest bee in town. With school, dance, art, and baseball, Lizzie doesn't have time for friends or even to read a book for pleasure. When a friendly woman offers some good advice, Lizzie is dazzled to discover it's the Queen! And that's how Bizzy Mizz Lizzy learns to stop and smell the flowers, "which...is exactly what bees are supposed to do."
