Bee & Me

When a bee buzzes in through this little girl's apartment window, her first instinct is to grab a flyswatter — but instead, she realizes that the bee needs her help. After consulting a book about bees, she gives it a little sugar water, and soon the bee has grown bigger than her! Soon, the bee takes her on a ride on its back, where they gather pollen to spread and seeds to scatter so that the world can continue to be lush and green.

In a wordless story told through enchanting illustrations, Bee & Me tells a tale of friendship and offers an introduction to the ecology of the natural world. Alison Jay's original artwork brings the story gently to life, pointing out the sadness of a world without bees. An afterword with bee facts makes clear to readers the important role these endangered insects play. This beautiful wordless picture book brings a personal note to the plight of the honeybee and offers a message of hope.

Description

"The bee grows and grows until it’s big enough for her to ride, its human facial features and fuzzy, brown-and-yellow striped body anything but threatening. (A stinger is conspicuously absent.) Together they fly to the countryside, harvest seeds, and sprinkle them in the city so that the next spring, it’s all abloom. Jay’s oil paintings are soft and delicate, offering delight in the details.... A page of bee facts concludes the book, with a focus on pollinator-friendly plants for readers to plant to encourage bees in their own environments." — Kirkus Review
