"Bumblebee at Apple Tree Lane" - The Book That Inspires An Appreciation And Understanding For The Elusive Bumblebee.
My four year old loves this book!
Like most small children, my daughter has a love/hate relationship with the insect world. There are days she's absolutely fascinated by them, then there are days when she's deathly afraid of the mere mention of insects - bumblebees were no exception.
A couple of weeks ago however, we made a bumblebee friend who we so lovingly called Biscuit. Watching Biscuit on a daily basis for about a week or so, peaked my daughters curiosity regarding anything bee related.
To keep up with her almost insatiable need to learn any and everything about her little bee friend, we came across an amazing children's book entitled: Bumblebee At Apple Tree Lane, by Laura Gates Galvin.
Nothing prepared me for the fascinating journey my toddler and I was about to participate in, as we thumbed through the pages of this beautifully illustrated book.
Illustrated by Kristin Kest, the reader is automatically taken on an bee adventure unlike any other. In addition to the vibrate colors of the bee's world, the illustrations are drawn in such a way, that allows the reader/readers to see the world through the eyes of the quintessential queen bumblebee.
Parent and child alike are allowed to take an intimate peek into the busy life of the books main character.
With the use of simple, yet detailed language, parents and children alike are presented with fascinating facts of the lives of bumblebees.
Exclusively licensed and authenticated by the Smithsonian Institution, Bumblebee At Apple Tree Lane, truly fosters an appreciation and understanding of wildlife and their natural habitats at any age.
