Excellent non fiction book for a 3 year old. Difficult to find non fiction easy enough for a 3 year old to understand. This is ideal. Pictures are clear and colourful. Text is simple to explain to a 3 year old. Our grand daughter loves watching busy bees on the plants. She can now tell you exactly what happens in the hive even although she hasn't seen one. Highly recommend this book.
As a beekeeper who works in primary school, I am always looking out for good children's books about bees. This book is packed with excellent photos with a simple text to accompany them. It is aimed at children under 8 but the pictures will facinate anyone who is interested in life in the hive. Not a 'how to do it' book, the text is too simple. I got a copy to illustrate talks about bees that I give to children and interested adults.
My 2 1/2 year old loved this book. It has lavish photographs, as you'd expect from DK. The level of information was just enough to stretch her, but not so much as to bewilder her. As a bonus, I also learned something through reading it to her!
