School Library Journal - 06/01/2019 K-Gr 2—The Big Idea Gang is back in this beginning chapter book series featuring third graders who hope to make a difference in their community. Kim and Lizzy visit beekeeper Ozzie, whose charismatic personality and enthusiasm for bees motivate the girls to raise awareness of the important environmental role that bees play. After pitching the idea to their supportive teacher, Miss Zips, the kids brainstorm at the library and come up with a plan to invite Ozzie as a guest speaker and plant some flowers in the school garden. Friendly characters who want to effect change are paired with upbeat text and cheerful pencil drawings. Endpapers include bee facts. VERDICT A solid choice for series fans and early chapter book collections.—Ramarie Beaver, Plano Public Library System, TX - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
