Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Designed for young elementary students, the author and illustrator have used a talking origami bee to explain simple plants parts as it buzzes around the garden with other talking insect friends. After "Charlie" is created by a young boy, he longs to join the other insects in their usual games about the garden. As Charlie joins in he begins to describe all the parts of the plants such as the roots, stems and leaves and their varying jobs in carrying out photosynthesis to generate flowers and fruits. Of course, the other insects seem bored with all this explanation but youngsters may find Charlie's explanations more meaningful with the characterizations of insects as just creatures that want to play. Color photos of plant parts, insects and of course, Charlie, as well as the silly dialogue make the learning of plant parts a big more interesting. A glossary, index, sources for more information and directions for making one's own origami bumblebee are included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
