This book is very interactive for kids. You can have them predict whats going to move on each page. The bear goes through the story trying to get the honey from the bees. Such a fun story to read with kids. ( )

This book tells the story of a happy little beehive living in a hallow tree, making honey. One bee in particular is able to retrieve his nectar while escaping a bird, fish and frog. While back at the hive the bees hear a loud growl come from outside the hive. They discover its a bear here to steal their honey so the bee goes and stings the bear right on his nose. The bees continue to sting the bear until he leaves. They then live happily ever after in their tree. The illustrations contain both interactive pull tabs and large popups. I feel this interactive element is used very wisely throughout this story. Each moving animal brings a silly and childlike quality to the story that children can easily become intrigued with. The images themselves are very colorful and full of imaginative texture and detail. This would be a great book to read to a classroom of young students. ( )

Book about a bear that tries to steal honey from bees, its a moving book/popup book which is interactive and a cool way to get the reader involved. The bees move and the bears hand moves the the bee flies onto his face.

I had never read this book before. I really like the fact that the book was interactive. On each page,including the title page, has pull tabs that lets kids pull and see the animals move. The pages are also very thick and sturdy so that they don't break after only a few uses. As a adult that takes care of children, this book would be appropriate to even children in the pre-k grades. I also liked this book because of the pictures that are so characteristic of Eric Carle. The pictures are almost textured. They basically pop off the page. They are so bright and colorful. I know as a kid I was always attracted to Eric Carle's artistic style. The last reason I like this book is because of the informational background. Children might think that the page is just talking about a bird, but it is talking about how the bird catches his food. You also learn the flight pattern of a bee throughout the book. You learn the ways that a bee eats, where it likes to fly, who eats it, and where they live. ( )

Summary: A honeybee travels outside of the hive one morning to begin its search for nectar. A bird tries to catch the bee but she was too fast for the bird. The bee went past a pond and a frog tried to eat it as well. The bee finally goes back to the hive and the entire beehive was amazed at the amount of nectar that the honeybee had collected when all of a sudden a robber shook the hive. A bear had found them and was trying to get their honey. All of the bees flew out and stung the bear on the nose, which made the robber run away.
Commentary: This would be a fun book to read to the class to show them that insects are constantly in danger, whether it is from a bear, frog or bird. Many things try to eat bugs which helps them to understand that this is the circle of life.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0399237313, Hardcover)

Whether she's sipping nectar from beautiful flowers, avoiding hungry birds and fish, dancing with a butterfly, or bravely protecting her entire hive from a big bear with an even bigger appetite, this honeybee is always on the move. Eric Carle's updated classic features truly inspired feats of paper engineering, including a galloping bear and a spectacular butterfly that looks as if it will take off at any moment. There's not a gratuitous pop-up, flap, or movable piece of art in the book; readers will gasp with delight at every page, with every reading. The charming story is still a showcase for Carle's distinctive collages, in delectable golds, earthy greens, shimmering blues, and warm browns. This version is smaller than the original, and the text has been revised slightly, with younger readers in mind. A clever new interactive cover allows children to make the villain bear's eyes cross as the angry looking bee stings his nose.

Carle's bold, appealing style is known and loved by happy readers everywhere, who return again and again to The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Quiet Cricket, The Grouchy Ladybug, and his many other very popular titles. (Preschool) --Emilie Coulter
