Overview

Featuring a group of insects organizing a wrestling competition, the story gives children both comfort and a lesson to be brave.

Book Intro

  Beetle and Stag Beetle snarl at each other whenever they meet. The other forest insects suggest that Beetle and Stag Beetle fight in a wrestling match to resolve their differences. Beetle and Stag Beetle are surprised at their sudden suggestion. Each one worries that they will be humiliated in front of everyone. Without knowing what they are thinking, other insects are excited to make this event even fancier. Crickets are told to give a choir performance; Butterflies are asked to give a dance performance and this pattern continues. The insects worry, wondering if they can pull off a good show. Will they hold the wrestling competition without a hitch? Who will be the winner?

 

* The Story about Challenges and Courage from Children’s Perspectives **

 

   Even though people have done something many times in the past, they experience stage fright when they have to perform in front of others.

   When children face challenges, adults say to them, “You’ll be alright. It’s no big deal.” However, these supposedly comforting and encouraging words actually do not ease much of children’s anxiety. What children fear most is coping with the situation by themselves, people’s staring, and unfamiliar surroundings. They need specific comfort and encouragement that helps them deal with their new environment.

   The insects’ wrestling match and performance teaches children that they are not the only one who faces challenges. If they make a mistake, they can ask for help. The lesson is simple: Make an effort, and you’ll do a better job.

 

* The Repetition of the Same Sentence Makes the Story Feel More Relatable * *

 

   The wrestlers, Beetle and Stag Beetle, a choir of Cricket Brothers, and a dance team of Butterfly Sisters all cry inwardly: Oh no, I’m in trouble! This repeated sentence strengthens the notion that everybody can experience the same feeling. Our young readers then think to themselves: This guy is nervous like me! I’m not the only one who is scared! Realizing that everyone may get nervous, children will gather more courage, have more confidence, and do a better job.
