Bea is a happy, smiling little girl, except when she’s in trouble and Mummy shouts “Beatrice Rose!” It is a marvelous introduction because every child will instantly empathize with Bea. Mummy is nice, but she does say no to one thing Bea wants very much; a puppy like Pip, who belongs to her friend next door. “Our garden is just too small for a dog, Bea”. Bea loves flowers and there are beautiful illustrations of snowdrops in winter, all sorts of colorful blooms in spring, and dandelions and daisies in summer. By autumn, Bea has sunflowers too. And what did the flowers attract? A fuzzy bumblebee, and so came about Sylva Fae’s story, Bea and Bee, because a bee was the perfect pet to live in a small garden full of flowers.
Bea having Bee for a pet is where all the fun starts! All the things the little girl and the bee could both do – hum, have “tea”, sleep, and fly – well, Bea does her best! Mummy worries a bee might sting, but of course, Bee doesn’t sting his friend. He does hurt his wing, but if you want to know if he got better and flew ziggardy, zaggardy, wibbly, wobbly, plop on more adventures with Bea, you must listen to the story, look at the pictures, and learn to read the words! It’s a story that shows you don’t have to have everything to be happy, and it’s rewarding to be kind. I was absolutely captivated by Sylva Fae’s Bea and Bee.
