I saw a bee, Hardback Book

I saw a bee Hardback

Illustrated by Rob Ramsden

Part of the In the Garden series



A little boy is alarmed when he discovers a bee in a box.

At first he is frightened and reacts aggressively, but gradually he realises that the bee won't harm him and that they can be friends.

I SAW A BEE is deceptively simple with the repeatability factor of the best Ruth Brown and Eric Carle, and the short and rhythmic text is perfect to learn by heart and recite as a poem.

It is a timely reminder of the importance of bees in our ecosystem. First in a series of stories which encourage young children to enjoy and appreciate the natural world. Long listed for the Klaus Flugge Prize.
