Alison Benjamin, Urban Bees Review for Brilliant Bombus Bumblebee

Bombus and the Beeline book review from Professor Dave Goulson “A charming and lovely children’s book, showing them why #bees are so important and how we can all easily do something to help.” (Professor of Biology at University of Sussex, specializing in bee ecology).

Puddock's Pond book review - This delightful book is a well-written guide for youngsters learning about wildlife conservation. The text, starring three children, is focussed on helping frogs in gardens and covers a range of important topics. Central to the story is the creation of a pond in which frogs and toads can lay their eggs and the subsequent growth and metamorphosis of tadpoles. Interesting asides include the value of recycling and getting help from parents and teachers. There are also pages that encourage colouring in and a section giving some basic facts about the biology of frogs and toads.   Altogether a great read, thoroughly recommended.

Professor Trevor Beebee

"A delightful book introducing children to the wonders of bees through fun story telling and quirky illustrations and simple steps to save them"

Our little girl Bella absolutely loved it and is going to ask her Nursary to plant a wild flower area in the garden for the bees. I do hope you are planning on writing some more in the series

Year 2 had the pleasure of hearing Nan read 'Bombus the Beeline'. The children loved the characters and the message behind the story. They also loved the colouring pages!
