I am absolutely chuffed as mint balls with the first review of Betsie Valentine and the Honeybees and cannot thank Dr Nicola Bradbear, Director of Bees for Development - www.beesfordevelopment.org - enough.
Congratulations on Betsie Valentine and the honeybees. This engaging story, with beautiful illustrations on every page, provides a marvellous way for children to enter the magical-but-true world of bees. As Betsie becomes a bee, she enters the bee world and the marvellous workings of the honey bee colony are gently opened out for her and the reader to understand.
We need children to learn and appreciate the amazing species that still share the earth with us, and this is a super way to help them to appreciate the important and priceless services that bees provide freely for us all.
