Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ages 4 and up.

When a young boy discovers a bee trapped in his bedroom he hides for fear of being stung. But when the amiable bee frantically explains all that bees do, the boy comes to understand how good things come in different packages: "Bees make honey. That much we know. Bees also spread pollen, which makes all things grow." 

The subject of honeybees' mysterious dwindling population throughout the world has been a growing concern in the news in recent years. Bee and Me brings the critical importance of bees to light for young children through the innovative, full color process of ANIMOTION in an engaging story of friendship and understanding. Bee and Me will charm readers while providing valuable information about how important bees are to sustainable agriculture. Bee and Me is sure to fascinate, entertain and engage readers of all ages.

Features:

* Unique animated windows on almost every spread enhancing the action of the story.

The first time ever that such a technique has been applied in full color through the ANIMOTION process.

* Enchanting full color illustrations.

* Special appendix full of fun and important bee facts.

Review:

"A book that will draw inevitable — and not necessarily favorable — comparisons to Rufus Butler Seder's Gallop! and Swing!, this story boasts color pictures in inset panels that appear to move as the pages are turned. The animations — a dog chasing a bee, a daisy opening its petals — provide a 'wow' factor, but unexceptional rhyming verse and illustrations weigh down the project. An anthropomorphized honeybee is chased by a dog into a house, where she is trapped after a frightened boy shuts the window. The bee begs for his aid, explaining how bees help plants, trees and flowers grow ('And then from her eye came a big, shiny tear./ 'We just want to help but you all run in fear' '). The animated panels are not especially well integrated, and a list of facts about bees is at odds with the fanciful depictions of a four-legged bee with big blue eyes. Ages 4 — up."

Synopsis:

The mystery of the dwindling population of honeybees throughout the world has been a growing concern in recent years. This story brings the critical importance of bees to light for young children through the innovative process of Ani-Motion. Full color.
