A parent ~ “Loved the book. So cleverly written and illustrated. Kids said they loved the pictures and learnt lots especially about the difference between male and female bees. They thought the rhyming was very clever and loved all the detail in the illustrations and the mix of photos too. The book generated lots of questions amongst the 7, 9 and 11 year olds and answered lots by the end also.”
