When a weary bee lands on her windowsill, the little girl in Bee & Me decides to help him, rather than attack. Feeding him sugary syrup, she nurses him back to health and then sets him free, only to see him return during a rainstorm. Soon the two are inseparable, and as the bee grows to unexpected sizes, the two have many wonderful adventures together. Then summer comes to an end and they must part. Is it the end of their friendship...?

Intended (according to the dust-jacket flap) to raise awareness about bees and the important role they play in our world, this wordless picture-book is absolutely beautiful! The oil paintings by Alison Jay, whose work I know from various fairy-tale retellings, are luminous, and the narrative engaging. It's particularly important, with wordless picture-books, for the images to tell a story, and in Bee & Me, they certainly do. Recommended to anyone looking for children's books about bees, or wordless picture-books in general. ( )

A beautiful wordless picture book brings a personal note to the plight of the honeybee and offers a message of hope.

A little girl befriends a bee that takes her on a journey of discovery, revealing an action that every child can take to aid in conservation. In a wordless story told through enchanting illustrations, Bee & Me tells a tale of friendship and offers an introduction to the ecology of the natural world.
