Title: Busy Bees – The Story of Honey
Author: Dafna and Avrami Tidhar
Illustrator: Avia Ben Simon
Round up the little ones and read them a story about the yummiest treat they can think of: Honey. Busy Bees – The Story of Honey is for readers who can sit still long enough to learn some serious natural facts as they enjoy charming cartoons that serve as visual jokes and witty commentary on the text.
The text is geared to children who can read and ask well-developed questions. The text can promote an appreciation for the tuv haBoreh, and future interest in natural sciences.
The innovative spiral-inside a hardcover binding makes the big pages easy to turn and less likely to tear from little fingers pulling the wrong way. However, the plastic-encased samples of honey, treife royal jelly, beeswax and propolis popping through peepholes into every page, are not meant to be touched or swallowed, let alone damaged.
Parents should supervise each reading to ensure that the protective bubbles are not damaged or dangerous items be ingested by youngsters (or pets).
