The Lovereading4Kids comment

We’re all different: some of us like running, some of us like sleeping, some of us like being cheeky; some of us don’t like being on our own, or making lots of noise, but that’s just how people are, and it’s fine, just as it’s fine for Jackson to like bees, but not honey. This bright, attractive picture book uses children’s own words alongside lively illustrations to make important points about confidence, self-awareness and the value of personal opinion. Royalties will go to the NSPCC who have given this important little book their backing. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

I Like Bees, I Don't Like Honey! by Sam Bishop

I like bees...But I don't like honey! I like my imaginary friend...But I don't like it when people say he's not real.

I Like Bees I Don’t Like Honey is a fun-filled picture book that encourages young readers talk about what they like and dislike. In bouncy rhyme, the book describes a host of opinions from lots of children. Every few pages the book asks the reader what they like and dislike, with a special page of speech bubbles at the end for the reader to fill in themselves

Illustrated by dazzling new talent Fiona Lumbers, the text draws on the original responses from children and their families and covers everything from being tickled to spitting llamas!

All author royalties will go to the NSPCC to help safeguard children from abuse.

About the Author

This book has been improved by contributions from dozens of children (along with their parents). Fiona has drawn on anything and everything from an early age and always insisted she would be an artist when she grew up. Fiona moved to London to study for an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art, and a combination of her obsession with picture books and the arrival of her first son led her down the path of illustration. She hasn't looked back since. I Like Bees! is her first book.
