Strangely, I had thought of rowing the Bee Tree by Patricia Polacco this week before the strange events of Friday. Now, of course, it is a must.
There have been so many questions about bees. Busy Buzzy Bee by Karen Wallace tells the story of a worker bee and hopefully, answers some of the questions.
Winnie the Pooh's encounter with the bees seemed like a good fit.
The very hungry caterpillar
the Bad-tempered ladybird.
I promised an update on the bee saga: the bees were in our garden at breakfast time today but by lunch , the swarm had gone. There was some activity round the hive but it seems that this was just a few "robber" bees and the whereabouts of the swarm is now unknown.
