The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bee loses his Umbrella one stormy day when it is blown out of his hands. So Ant and Bee set out on a globe trotting tour to try to find it. They visit many countries and, in do so, bring the geography and customs of each place to life. Revised to bring it up to date since it was originally created, this is a charming introduction to the world.


Around the World with Ant and Bee by Angela Banner

The Ant and Bee books are cleverly written to introduce letters and simple words to young children through shared reading with an adult or older child. In Around the World with Ant and Bee the countries and peoples of the world are brought to life for young children, as they travel with Ant and Bee looking for Bee’s loved and lost umbrella.

Angela Banner - "All my ANT and BEE books are for shared reading. If a parent or older child reads the black words then young children can join in the storytelling by calling out the words printed in red and “umbrella” when the picture appears. While they enjoy Ant and Bee’s adventures,
I hope children will become familiar with some of the features of our wonderful world."
