This book is suitable for children between 3 and 6 years of age.
We hear much about the plight of the bumble bee population and its implications for our planet’s future. This beautiful picture book makes the story personal and brings a message of hope. A little girl befriends a bee, which takes her on a journey of discovery. Alison Jay’s original artwork points out what a sad world it would be without bees.
For the first time, Alison Jay illustrates her own storyline. Her love of nature and sympathy for the smallest creatures comes to the fore as she wordlessly tells the story of a growing friendship and understanding between a little girl and a bumble bee. Given free rein at last, her artwork is colourful and expressive and gently brings children to an understanding of the relationship between the human world and our natural environment.
