What if there were BEES in your classroom? Your classroom would be buzzing with fun! The Beeman is the perfect book and literature guide for Grandparents' Day!
The Beeman is a sweet, warm picture book about a beekeeper and his young granddaughter who tells the story in spare and rhythmic text. The child describes her delight through a day with her beekeeper-grandfather. The bright, cheery illustrations show the amazing behavior of bees gathering nectar, laying eggs, and and storing importance of honeybees to plants and people. The little girl's fascination with bees' lives comes full circle to the gathering of the honey and the using it for making muffins. It is a perfect nonfiction story for reading aloud.
