5.0 out of 5 stars We like this book 10 Jun 2010
By Sharon
We had this on loan from the library for months when our son was a bit younger. Now he is four and reading we bought the book for him to keep. The bee starts off as a very greedy bee but wants to share with his friends at the end. Bright, clear colourful pictures to go with the words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute book. 2 Sep 2011
By Valerie
Our 2 year old loves bees, so she automatically loves this book. It has beautiful colorful illustrations and lots of funny words like "slouchy" and "slurpy" she giggles at. Good "moral" to the story.
