The Boy And The Bee by Stephen George is a book about friendship between a little boy and a bee. Every afternoon after his lunch, Ian McBeein used to take naps. One day he dozed off and woke up to a beautiful, clear sky, and asked his mom to play outside. While outside, Ian decided to play on his sandbox. He met a bee called Bumble, and they became friends immediately. Bumble got so comfortable with Ian that he introduced him to his bee friends. Ian was having a lot of fun outside when all of a sudden he was faced with an imminent danger. When Bumble became aware of that, he did not waste any time assembling his beehive and backing Ian up.

The Boy And The Bee by Stephen George is a sweet friendship story. The plot is short and simple. The book, geared toward preschool aged children and younger grades, touches on subjects such as colors, weather, numbers, animal sounds, and the importance of naps. If there was an aspect that stood out to me in the reading, this was definitely one. I liked it very much and praise Stephen George for it. The cute illustrations, which are also self-explanatory, give really good material for “read-alouds.” Children three years old and younger will have a fun time turning the pages, looking at the pictures and making up their own stories. Teachers will be glad the reading is quick and easy. This book is also a great source for bedtime stories.
