5-a-Day-bees and other insects

Since the bee episode, it was obvious that we had to read about bees this week.

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.
 My aim wasn't to read the whole book every day so far I don't think this aim will succeed. Hope I can still speak by the end of the week.

The very hungry caterpillar
is a favourite of Mr Exuberance and fits in with the general theme as does another Eric Carle book, 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.

This is linked 5 a day booksto 5-a-Day books.
