Bee-Cause We Care: About Our Honey Bees
“ Benny and Betty fly back to the hive, they will get some ideas to keep them alive”
Bee-Cause We Care tells the story of 2 worker bees that go out into the flower fields to forage for pollen to bring back to the hive. On their journey, they observe a farmer spraying dangerous pesticide on his flowers. The alarmed bees make it their mission to alert the farmer by enlisting the help of a few of his animals and eventually they save the bees in the hive.
Betty and Benny excitedly set off to the field of sunflowers, but soon discover something that will endanger their hive family and they must figure out a way to stop it. How will they solve their problem ? Of course, ask the farm animals to help ! Bee-Cause We Care is a fictional children’s picture book with an underlying message of raising awareness of a global issue. My target audience will be children between 2 1/2- 6. I see parents, teachers and grandparents reading Bee-cause We Care and taking advantage of a teachable moment. The rhyming verses are catchy and the illustrations endearing.
