The Lovereading4Kids comment
Told entirely in pictures, this is the story of a special friendship and demonstration of all that bees do for our world. A bee strays into a dusty city and through an open window where a little girl is reading a book about flowers. She helps the exhausted bee, feeding it a solution of sugar and water, and a friendship develops. They fly out into the country where they collect seeds, scattering them over the city on their return. When winter comes, the bee leaves, but when she returns in the spring, the city is transformed, streets and rooftops sprouting grass and wild flowers. The difference between a world with and without bees is clear for all to see. An inspiring book that will open readers’ eyes. ~ Andrea Reece

Bee and Me by Alison Jay
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.
