This delightfully written book by New Zealand author Rachel Weston and illustrated by Deborah Hinde will captivate young and old. 

A sweet, relevant story invoking conversations with children about the wonder and importance of bees. Perfect for inspiring our little people to take care of our little creatures and the world around us.

This beautifully rhyming story is a delight to the eyes and to the ears. The messages are both factual and important. In Bumblebee Rachel introduces the concept of pollination in a deceptively simple way as we follow Bumblebee through the seasons of her remarkable year

When Bumblebee awakens from her long winter sleep, she cannot find any flowers for food.  Who will save Bumblebee? A child of course.  Like flowers beginning to bloom, children's minds will grow by understanding the synergy between flowers, bees and the food we eat.

Summed up perfectly by Rudd Kleinpaste...

"For the sake of humanity and the life-forms we live with on Earth, we need to rediscover the Operations Manual of our Planet and that means getting reacquainted with our natural world as early as possible in life.

Insects do brilliant jobs and they are involved in so many ecosystems, showing that, in Nature, everything is connected.

This story starts it all off for our youngest humans, on their way to become nature literate" 

You can also see Rachel's best selling book Bumblebees Have Smelly Feet which you can find here.

We also have Seed Bombs for attracting Bees to your garden - the perfect gift idea for young ones to grow their own garden for feeding the bees  which you can find here.
