Bee – Britta Teckentrup
This paperback book from Britta Teckentrup and Little Tiger is similar in concept to her Tree title. The pages have various cut out elements to them – all hexagonally shaped like the cell of a piece of honeycomb. Through the pages and the cut outs the reader can trace the journey of the bee through woods and meadows pollinating plants as it goes about its business.
“Bee travels from bloom to bloom
Drawn in by their sweet perfume.
Harvesting flowers one by one;
Her compass is the midday sun.”
Putting aside the probability that the bee is male rather than female the book is charming with lots of other finely illustrated details to divert the reader.
