Bees are fascinating creatures. We enjoy their honey and we run as fast as we can when we see one coming towards us. Ha! We do appreciate, though, all that they do for our environment and how they keep this world beautiful. This post is a mini tribute to bees because they are just so smart and so cool. We have a great list of activities, crafts and books about bees.
Books About Bees
*We received an advance reading copy of A Season to Bee for review. My review is my own opinion and thoughts on the book read. This post also contains affiliate links. Please read our full disclosure here for more info on this.
A Season to Bee by Carlos Aponte
Fashion illustrator Carlos Aponte gives readers front row seats to the runway show of the season! Join Miss V. McQueen and her band of fashion bugs as they flit and flutter their brilliant colors down the catwalk. Ladybug reds, butterfly golds, and grasshopper greens provide young readers with a chic introduction to the colors found all around us. – Penguin Random House
This book is perfect for my little fashionista and the bee is too darn cute! The illustrations are just darling – filled with color and all things fashion, complete with paparazzi and bugs in high heels. It makes a fun way to incorporate learning colors and afterwards you can have your little one put on their own fashion show of colors!
More Books about Bees
I still remember when my then toddler son was learning how to identify letters. He was so proud of himself for connecting the letter B from our foam alphabet puzzle to the Bee movie playing on the tv. Bees seem to be popular in those younger years. Here are even more books featuring bumblebees and cover a variety of topics including having courage to do what you think you can’t, the importance of sharing with others, food chains, and how workers, drones, and the queen bees live together. There’s also a couple of cute suggestions for toddlers.
