“Mr. Tate’s class loves taking field trips. Today their bus went to a farm.”
At first the kids thought it was strange that all there was on the farm were flowers and trees. Then they find out it is a bee farm and bees live there. Then they learn about how bees are so important to plants, flowers and us! They also listen to the buzzing of the bees and hear the bees’ song.
Why I liked this book – This is a great book for young kids to learn about how bees are very important. It also talks about how bees make honey. I like that during the “Bees’ song” the bees count up to ten, which also teaches young kids how to count. This is a great book for ALL ages! I love Ms. Formento’s book! I can’t wait to read her “These Trees Count” book and the newest book in the series, “These Seas Count”!
**NOTE I bought a copy of this book at a festival.
I gave Cate Alison's and Sarah's first book, This Tree Count, and Cate loved it. When she got These Bees Count, she was so happy to see the children from the first book having a new adventure. She made her grandfather read it three times that first day, and she pored over it, finding each of the characters she remembered, and delighting in their day at the farm, with the flowers and bees and honey!Was this review helpful?
