A Bear, a Bee, and a Honey Tree

Authors: Bernstrom, Daniel, Scott , Brandon J. (Illust.)


Delightful….if you read only ONE bear-related picture book this year, let it be this one…..The ultimate read aloud to large groups as well as one on one lapsits! – Betsy Bird’s end-of-year and influential list.

Essential.  Scott’s illustrations are luminous! Gorgeous. Glowing….the words and pictures are a cohesive whole that will delight every reader. A master text for picture book writers – it’d be great to share with any creative writing class. – Kiss the Book Jr.

From 3 years to 7 years

Boisterous and buzzing, A Bear, a Bee, and a Honey Tree is destined to be an instant classic . . . with delightully funny illustrations and clever, fun-to-read text, from the acclaimed author of One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree.

When a hungry, fuzzy brown bear and a hive of angry bees come face to face, everybody’s abuzz! Award-winning author Daniel Bernstrom and critically acclaimed illustrator Brandon James Scott have created a rowdy, rhythmic read-aloud that’s also perfect for beginning readers. This epic chase story features Bernstrom’s signature alliterative wordplay and verbal pizzazz, along with Scott’s expressive characters that jump off the pages. A Bear, a Bee, and a Honey Tree has the kind of highenergy, uninhibited playfulness that makes kids want to run, chase, find out something about bear and bee behavior—and learn to read!
