The 1,2,3 Bees

Summary:

Follow the bees through their busy day, and use counting to enjoy the fun.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The illustrations are beautiful, the bees are cute, and the pages are sturdy and will withstand frequent readings.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, really. For parents, it would be fun to have a little more story or lead-ins for creating interactive reading.


Little Kid Reaction

As we closed the book on the first reading, our preschooler announced "Read it again, Mama." We've since read it a number of times, each one a little slower, as s/he begins to study the illustrations in more detail.

Parent Reaction

The story is really just a sequence of sentences counting out how many bees and what they do. The illustrations make the book.
