Tales from Nature: Bee
Join little bee as he gathers pollen from a flower, and makes honey with his friends. But what happens when the queen bee arrives? Introducing nature to little ones, Tales From Nature provides simple, entertaining storylines with an animal character as the focus. Bright and colorful illustrations are sure to engage young children as they learn about each animal’s day, from a cute description, to what it eats, and where it lives. Simple, engaging text explains nature in a playful way for little ones. Each page includes a window or a flap to encourage children to read on and discover more.
My thoughts: My greatgrandfather was a beekeeper, so I grew up with stories about bees. Springtime is the best time to let children discover these wonderful creatures. Magali Attigbe’s book is sweet and child-friendly and does a wonderful job of describing bees’ body parts, the process of nectar collection, life in a beehive and, of course, famous bee communication.
The text is easy to follow even for a toddler, while the illustrations are in beautiful bright colours and are sure to put a smile on your face.
Tales From Nature: Ladybug
‘Ladybug’ is another great title in this series. It follows the same pattern as ‘Tales From Nature:Bee’ by introducing children to the appearance, food habits and the lifecycle of this helpful little insect. The text is simple and accessible, which is important as the target audience is a 3-4 year old child, but the real strength of the book is the artwork with its bright and bold colours and delightful smiley creatures.
