Fiction: is about a little busy bee that buzzes around to different flowers. This story explains why flowers and bees are so important and how they help each other. ( )

This is a cute book to introduce children to bees and other insects. It illustrates how bees affect nature, but does so in a simple language that children can understand. ( )

I read this to my 2.5 year old grandson and we both enjoyed it. The rhyming words are simple to understand and fun to read out loud. He learned about bees while having fun pointing at the pictures that are bright, colourful, and appealing to a toddler.

Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review ( )

Simple and informative as well as being a beautifully illustrated little book about why bees like flowers. I read this to a group of 4-6 year olds and they really liked it. It didn't answer all their questions though and they wanted to know 'how the bees spreading pollen helps flowers to grow?' Although this could lead on to further reading and research, for children this age an extra page or two to explain this in simple terms would make the book complete. ( )

Bees Like Flowers is a cute story that my preschooler enjoyed having read to her. The rhyming made it fun to read. It is educational and teaches a bit about the importance of bees and pollination. I didn't really like the use of the word "cos" instead of because (done for rhyming purposes), but that is just a personal preference. I would like to read this author’s other books in the Mummy Nature series as well. ( )

Illustrated for maximum vibrancy and visual impact, using rhyme to engage young minds and encourage participation. Read the rhymes to your children and soon they will be reading them to you!
