Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In a city park, a small girl and a young bee come face-to-face. She wants to pick berries. The bee wants nectar. Simple, bouncing rhymes switch from the child�s viewpoint (When I come home / we�ll make a treat, / sweet jam on toast / for me to eat) to the bee�s voice (We�ll make honey / when I come home / sweet honey to fill our honeycomb). The whimsical, uncluttered watercolor-and-pencil illustrations show each character busy at first, then scared of the other, and finally safe and satisfied on their way home. The dramatic close-ups show the bee next to the kid�s nose, and even as preschoolers recognize that bees can be scary, they can also talk with adults about the larger issues of cooperation and conservation: bees and people can happily coexist, as long as there are plenty of vines / for us to share. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman

I had heard about this book because I had heard Ms. Morales was a fantastic painter. Although dissappointed she was did not do the illustrations I bought it anyway for my 3 year old daughter. It is now her favorite book! I would recommend this to anyone in the market looking for a fun read!

Format: Hardcover
A tale told from two points of view, that of a little girl hunting for berries and a bee hunting for nectar. Both, we are learn, have a goal, are scared of the other, and realize the other is ultimately not a threat. A very gentle tale. Love the moment when the girl and the bee confront each other.

"One for the bucket and one for me.
One for the bucket and one for---

OH!

It's a bee,
so loud and near,
but if I just stand still,
there's nothing to fear."
