A vividly visual and hands-on treat for inquisitive babies and
toddlers. This clever new bee book is guaranteed to fly off the
shelves. * Lancashire Evening Post *
A delightful addition to this amazingly popular series, and with the plight of the bee population now so prominent in public awareness, who could resist it? I love the expression on the bee's faces, and of course, there's the wee white mouse to look for too. Perfect! * Sally Pattle Far From the Madding Crowd bookshop, Scotland *
A lovely read that is interactive and filled with bright, engaging illustrations. * Mamma Filz *
