Bee and Me by Elle J. McGuiness

The fantastic new storybook that everyone is buzZz-ing about! From author Elle J. McGuinness and illustrator Heather Brown, Bee & Me is an entrancing book that features vibrant full colour illustrations introduced by the innovative technique of Ani-motion, created by Accord designers Jeff Cole and Katarina Ford. Bee & Me is the first book to feature Ani-motion applied in full colour, providing the visually arresting Ani-motion panels in almost every spread to enhance the action and immediacy of the story. When a young boy discovers a bee trapped in his bedroom he hides for fear of being stung. But when the amiable bee frantically explains all that bees do, the boy comes to understand how good things come in different packages: Bees make honey. That much we know. Bees also spread pollen, which makes all things grow. Perfect for children of all ages and reading levels, Bee & Me tells the endearing story of a boy who overcomes his fear of bees when he meets and talks to one, who explains to him all of the good that bees do for the world. The bee explains that he and his friends aren't something to be afraid of, but instead are responsible for many beneficial things, from making honey to keeping flowers and trees alive. Bee & Me also offers a special appendix full of fun and informative bee facts. Bee & Me is the perfect book for all ages, offering a charming story, dazzling illustrations, unique Ani-motion panels, and an educational approach to understanding bees and how they benefit the world.
