THE BUG WHO THOUGHT HE LOST HIS BUZZ:WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE BIG, BAD BEAST STINGS, Kristen Barnett
Watt’s Bugging You? Series: At Watt’s Bugging You, we have a BUG mission to touch children’s and parent’s lives. Our series of children’s books and products are aimed at helping parents talk through real life scenarios (terminal illness, death, adoption, disabilities, etc.) with their young children (2-6 yrs. old) using faith messages, children’s language, and children’s characters (Bugs). For this first book: Bugsy, the bee, no longer feels his buzz, so, he goes to the hospital to see what is the matter. When he gets examined by Doc Fuzz, he soon learns he has the Big Bad Beast. Like many bees, he begins asking God the tough questions such as why. Luckily God is by his side to support Bugsy through the journey. Read the “Bug Who Thought He Lost His Buzz” to talk to your own little bee about being diagnosed with a terminal illness and then follow the activities at the front of the book and on the web site (http: //www.wattsbuggingyou.com) to continue talking to God what it means for your family.

THE SONGAMINUTE MAN, Simon McDermott
A powerful and emotional memoir about family and memory from the father-son singing sensation whose heartwarming carpool karaoke video took social media by storm.
At first, Simon’s beloved father, Ted, suffered sudden bad moods and forgetfulness. Then the diagnosis: Alzheimer’s.
Ted was disappearing from the family, but Simon wanted to hold on to him. While music could bring him back temporarily—the video of the two of them singing along to Ted’s favorite song was a hit around the world—Ted could no longer tell his story.
This is that story.
