The little bee that lost her way – book review

if you’re looking for a bee themed book to read to children, you can’t go wrong with The Little Bee That Lost Her Way by Paul Vagg.

The charmingly illustrated worker bee – looking like a northern granny in her Pom Pom hat and glasses – gets distracted while out filling her pollen baskets. She has all sorts of near misses with the local birds and beasts, including a magpie in a neckerchief, as she desperately tries to find her home again.

Tommy enjoyed reading about the little bee together, especially enjoying the part involving a big spider with many eyes. I’m pleased to say her story does have a happy ending! The book is written in rhyming poetry and filled with bright illustrations which should appeal to any child who loves insects and other animals.

About Emily Scott

I am a UK beekeeper who has recently moved from London to windswept, wet Cornwall. I first started keeping bees in the Ealing Beekeepers Association’s local apiary in 2008, when I created this blog as a record for myself of my various beekeeping related disasters and - hopefully! - future successes.

  1. I think books with poetry are always firm favourites. Amelia
