BEE and ME by Alison Jay

This is a summary of the book...

Told entirely in pictures, this is the story of a special friendship and demonstration of all that bees do for our world. A bee strays into a dusty city and through an open window where a little girl is reading a book about flowers.  She helps the exhausted bee, feeding it a solution of sugar and water, and a friendship develops. They fly out into the country where they collect seeds, scattering them over the city on their return. When autumn comes, the bee leaves, but when she returns in the spring, the city is transformed, streets and rooftops sprouting grass and wild flowers. The difference between a world with and without bees is clear for all to see.




It is a lovely book about taking care of our world but also about kindness and friendship.

Today we are going to think about the wonderful friendship that develops between the girl and the bee. Look at the pictures below from the book and talk about the things they like to do together...

Think about how you like to spend your time with your friends. During this stay at home time we haven't been able to see our friends but we might talk to them on the phone, play computer games with them or even write them letters. Choose one or more of the friendship activities to do. If you want to you could even write a letter to a friend or send them a message!
