Bea’s Bees is a positive story about bees. So often, bees are depicted as scary, flying insects to be avoided or get stung. This book shows that bees are good. They can fly around you while they search for flowers. It explains what bees do with pollen and how they help. Bea is sad when the bees disappear and researches why they went away and how to get them back. In the end that is exactly what occurs. I enjoyed this easy to read book. The illustrations are wonderful. Being afraid of bees was never an issue. It was just accepted that Bea was not afraid of them. It is a great book for children who may be frighten or who are first experiencing these insects for themselves. I particularly liked that Bea planted seeds to bring the bees back to the park. As a bonus, the book contains illustrations of flowers and plants that attract bees. I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.
