Busy Bees at Work and Play is an adorable story about a mama bee and her daughter. Her little girl, like most children addresses the question of "Why do you have to go to work? " Bambina Bee wants her mommy to stay home and play with her! Mama bee quickly explains to Bambina bee that , "throughout the day, there is time for work and play." She takes her Bambina on a tour around town and shows her how each bee working helps the community. Bambina Learns about the many different jobs the bees have and what they do throughout the day. At the end of the day, everyone takes time to play! This book is an attention grabber! My daughter remembered the name of the book five hours after I told her the title. I had not yet read the book to her, just showed her the cover and read the title when it arrived in the mail. She said "It's the great, great, great! I learned you have to work and play. Work comes first. I liked the farmer bee best." Not only was my daughter full of questions and comments on this book, she was interested and inquisitive. My husband noticed that she was searching through the book and asked what she was looking for. She replied, "The authors name!" This made me very happy that she is learning books have stories, but also authors that create the stories. This book is adorable, and informative in a fun way. The illustrations are beautiful and vibrant. It reminded me of the Bee movie. I would recommend this book for children 2-6 years of age. It will be a delightful addition to your child's library.

Such a cute book! Busy Bees at Work and Play is a simple book for preschoolers and early elementary school children written by M. Maitand DeLand, MD. As Momma Bee prepares to depart for work, her daughter, Bambina Bee, asks a question that many mothers of preschoolers have heard at least once, "why do you have to work today?" Momma Bee uses this as a teaching moment and explains to Bambina that there is a time to work and a time to play. She continues on explaining the importance of each worker in the community. Some of the important jobs highlighted in the story include the mail carrier, the plumber, the doctor and the farmer. I like how the author chose to bring the modern world into the story by introducing 'Computer Bee' who "fixes the cables and cords so Ben Bee can reach the computer keyboard. Awesome. As each worker bee (how clever to use bees!) is discussed, the illustrations provide a subtle hint about how that particular bee likes to play. For instance, near the foot of Computer Bee there is a puppy wagging its tale eager to play Frisbee. Another example is the policeman who has some golf clubs in the backseat of his patrol car. Parents! You must get this book for your little one. It is a great resource to introduce your children to various jobs in the community as well as fun ways to play. It is also an excellent tool for homeschooled children. This could very well serve as your spine -a springboard for further study. I enjoyed this colorful pictures and well drawn characters in this book as well. Bravo! Good Work! Check it out and see for yourself.
