What s not to love about this book The rhythm is soothing and the pictures are detailed without being too busy for little eyes And once again, gotta love Barefoot Books, the pages and pages of explanations, definitions, and factual information stored in the back like a prize at the end My 2nd grader loves hearing this part almost as much as the fictional narrative
I love how informative this story is And it s rhyming and repetitive text would definitely help keep kids attention While the illustrations are my favorite just a personal preference for what I gravitate toward , they are engaging and colorful and I could definitely see kids enjoying it.

Loved the tale and the rhymes but my favourite part was how there was a lot of beekeeping info at the back if the book It s suitable for a range of ages because of this Would buy this book.
Super cute story with some awesome extra info at the end
Bees make honey Beekeepers wear special suits Honey is yummy Learn all about it No, you don t actually need to have your own children to read children s books.
