About the Game

In this story, a grumpy bug grows increasingly more so as his rotten moods and naughty behavior send potential winged insect friends on the fly. But when something turns his bad mood into a good one, things begin to change. Kids click on the arrow each time they're ready for Sandra to read the next page.

Parent Tip: Talk about the grumpy bug. Why does he feel that way? When does your child feel that way? Then talk about ways to make bad days better.
