I saw a Bee

Rob RamsdenClick here for biography

A little boy is surprised when he discovers a bee. At first he is frightened and reacts aggressively, but soon he comes to understand and love his new friend.

Stylish and modern illustrations are accompanied by a simple and rhythmic text which is perfect to learn by heart and recite as a poem.

This is the first in a series of stories which encourage young children to enjoy and appreciate the natural world.

Praise for this book:

'This effectively simple book is beautifully illustrated with stylish, patterned graphics showing bee and boy sharing our precious natural environment. The first of a proposed series of books aiming to 'encourage young children to enjoy and appreciate the natural world' it's perfect for sharing with young listeners and equally, with its short rhythmic rhyming text, an ideal book for beginning readers. Either way, it conveys its crucial environmental message without a hint of preachiness.' Books for Keeps
