This was the first book I read out of the Diaries of Robin's Toys series and it was very cute. Coming from a publisher in the UK, there were a few times I had to stop and think - pence instead of US dollars, the car boot sale instead of a flea market or yard sale... but other than that it was very easy to read.

Robin's grandfather brings him to the car boot sale every week and gives him money for a toy - once they bring the toy home his grandfather casts a spell to get the toy to tell their story. These stories often lead to a lesson that Robin and his grandfather can use on a problem they are currently facing.

In this first book, Robin buys a toy bee who tells him all about being a bee and teamwork. Robin is able to take the tale and use it in his own life with a problem his soccer team has been facing recently.

The book is designed to look like a diary, lined pages and sketches of the events, even dates and times. It was very cute. The books are short and easy to read and complete. I think these would be best suited to more experienced beginning readers, as the paragraphs are a little on the longer side and there is a good amount of dialogue.

Overall, I think the tale in Bertie the Bee is an important one for any child to learn and the book can be read alone or with an adult. It was a wonderful story.

Also an adorable note is that this series is written by a father/daughter duo. ( )
