Reviews
An empowering story, this book shows readers that one person--no matter the age--can make a big difference. The lovely illustrations are a pleasure to behold, and the bees manage to be realistic and yet not intimidating. While this is a work of fiction, the author and illustrator use true facts about bees and what is happening to them, including a guide for readers to take steps to preserve the bees remaining in the world. A beautiful final touch includes drawings of each wildflower seen in the book accompanied by its appropriate name.VERDICT This informational picture book is a necessary addition to elementary library shelves as an important contribution to the understanding and conservation of bees--School Library Journal
[T]he final page of labeled wildflowers is a lovely and useful finish.--Kirkus Reviews
This story offers a great introduction to the important work bees do as pollinators, and Bea teaches us how to plant wildflowers to help feed the bees.--Whole Kids Foundation
This picture book not only shines light on the importance of looking after bumblebees but also has a diverse main character. That said, it is much more than just a message, it is a story too, one that children will enjoy reading, full of beautiful illustrations which add depth and humour.--Picture Book Perfect
Charmingly illustrated by Ellie Peterson, this entertaining and informative story by Katherine Pryor is an especially recommended addition to family, elementary school, and community library Pets/Wildlife picture book collections.--Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch
