Little Bee Sunbeam by Jakob Streit


Little Bee Sunbeam by Jakob Streit

This is the story of a honeybee called Little Bee Sunbeam. She's searching for especially good nectar, to make honey, when it suddenly becomes very cold, forcing her to spend the night alone in the forest. Jakob Streit brings all his storytelling ability to this lovely tale, which introduces issues of sexuality for the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum. Suitable as a reader for Year 5 (age 11) and up, or to be read to children from Year 3 (age 9) and up, it also fits well into the Botany lesson block in the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
