BEE & Me by Elle J McGuinness & Illustrated by Heather Brown

Bee & Me is the fantastic storybook that everyone is buzZz-ing about! From author Elle J. McGuinness and illustrator Heather Brown, Bee & Me is an entrancing book that features vibrant full color illustrations, as well as the innovative technique of Ani- motion. Bee & Me is the first book to have Ani-motion applied in full color, and the appearance of the visually arresting Ani-motion panels in almost every spread greatly enhances the action and immediacy of the story.

Perfect for children of all ages and reading levels, Bee & Me tells the endearing story of a boy who over- comes his fear of bees when he meets and talks to one, who explains to him all of the good that bees do for the world. The bee explains that he and his friends aren’t something to be afraid of, but instead are re- sponsible for many beneficial things, from making honey to keeping flowers and trees alive. And indeed, a recent Cornell University study estimated that honeybees annually pollinate over $14 billion worth of seeds

and crops in the United States. Zac Browning, vice president of the Ameri- can Beekeeping Federation, shares this astonishing fact: “Every third bite we consume in our diet is dependent on a honeybee to pollinate that food. “Considering the importance of bees to daily life, the mysterious disap- pearance of large portions of the honeybee population in recent years is strikingly unsettling. With honey- bees suddenly becoming such an important focus of daily life, it is vital to introduce children to them through a story of friendship and understand- ing that highlights the need to re- spect bees instead of fearing them.

Bee & Me also offers a special appendix full of fun and informative bee facts, and even instructs how best to help bees continue their work effectively, such as leaving out a glass of water to help bees cool their hives, or planting more blue and purple flowers (bees’ favorites)! Ultimately, Bee & Me is the perfect book for all ages, offering a charming story, dazzling

illustrations, unique Ani-motion panels, and an educational approach to understanding bees and how they benefit the world.
