Scout and Daisy are at the farmers market to buy some honey from the buzzing bee farmers, but find there is no honey left! Where will Scout find some honey? Follow Scout and Daisy as they learn all about Bees and the case of the buzzing honey maker!
Bees are usually something scary to most children. They have a bad reputation to sting people, afterall. This cute story will teach you and your little one that there is more to a bee than meets the eye! They are not actually after your meal or even you when you are having a picnick. They are simply doing what bees do!
Do you know how important bees are to the environment? They buzz around from flower to flower collecting pollen. They also help add other pollen’s to other plants to help them grow and flourish for other species of bugs and animals to survive.
So, how do we get honey? When there is no honey for us, the bees must be working extra hard in their hives! Find out in this cute story as our two main characters go on a journey to find out where the bees are!
