"Princess Belinda Bean takes the throne as Queen and Ruler of Beandom. All are happy except the duke, Mean Ol' Bean, who wants to be the king and ruler. He lures her into a magic labyrinth from which there is no escape. L. Joe Bean, one of her subjects, discovers the plot. Will he be able to save his queen? What will happen to Mean Ol' Bean? The message of the story is that cleverness wins the day. In the series entitled The Lima Bear Stories, each has a distinct personality that shines through in every story. While the children have no idea what twists and turns the story may take, they come to know the characters and have a pretty good idea of how they are likely to act in different situations and settings. Each story carries an important overriding message (such as courage, tolerance, honesty), and we believe that knowing the characters creates a better understanding and appreciation of the message."
What we thought: Another great addition to The Lima Bear Series! Filled with colorful illustrations and an engaging plot line, The Labyrinth kept my kiddos involved and excited about the story all the way to the end. This book is great for teaching important lessons like courage and ingenuity. ABCD Diaries gives The Labyrinth an A+!
