Polly Bee Makes Honey Press Reviews

'The simple, bold illustrations are attractive and informative, and there's just the right level of detail to enable young people to understand how a jar of honey is produced.' Booktrust;'The bright illustrations and short bursts of clear text make this a good book to use in EYFS to help explain where our food comes from. There's also a useful comprehension and 'guess what' section at the end of the book, which could form the basis of discussion or non-fiction writing ideas.' School Reading List;'The story provides simple facts in an easy to understand way - perfect for little ones curious about nature and where their food comes from. In addition to the basics, it's got further information for older children - I also learnt a few things, eg, how the worker bees tell each other where to find the best flowers. A really gorgeous, engaging and colourful non-fiction book for young children.' The Book Deli;'This book will raise environmental awareness and an understanding of how much effort goes into producing our food.' Scope for Imagination;'This is a fantastic way for children to realise how impressive bees are in what they do, and come to respect their self sufficiency as they survive in the insect world' Bookbound

She never lets her dyslexia stop her from trying her best, and being really cheerful about everything that she does. Which suffragette do you most ...
