    The sweetness of reading

    When a little girl wants to be up and doing instead of reading her lesson, her grandfather takes her outside to find a 'bee tree', a tree in which bees have made their honey. He starts by catching some bees and then releasing one at a time to follow to their nest. The chase picks up a lot of excited people, so there is a crowd to enjoy a feast of honey eventually. But then Grandpa shows the girl the sweetness of books, too.

    Let's go to the Bee Tree

    If you don¿t like reading, read this book and go to a bee tree. This will sweeten up your reading. This book tells you, if you don¿t like reading try to make it fun. In the book, Mary Ellen doesn¿t like reading and her grandpa suggests going to a bee Tree! On their way to the bee tree a bunch of people stop by and tag along. When they got to the bee tree they had a lot of honey. They had so much honey they threw a party! Everybody who tagged along came and they had a party with honey flavored foods. I really enjoyed this book so I think you will too.

    The Bee Tree

    This story is very good and if you don¿t want to read then go to a bee tree and sweeten up your book and read it some more!! If you like to read but sometimes you get tired of reading, than this book would be perfect for you!! In this story Patricia Polacco really brings out the characters old fashioned look!! If you read this book you can really picture the book even though there are already pictures in the story! Maybe you can follow bees to their bee tree and do the sane thing Mary Ellen did!! I can¿t believe all those people followed Mary Ellen and her grandfather just to get to a bee tree!! I bet Mary Ellen and her grandfather had a lot of honey for the party afterwards!! If you read this book I hope you will like it just like I did!!!
