Buzzing with The Bee Puppet


 This Easter one of my Grandsons discovered a Bee Puppet in his basket. He was overjoyed and delighted to play with it. What fun. This particular Folkmanis puppet will be in stock April 3oth, 2011.


Bee Puppet

Buzz along with this handcrafted puppet. The plush bee is designed atop a glove that becomes the wiggly legs, and sheer wings and antennae adorn the top.
Ages 5 to 8 years
Produced By: Folkmanis
In Stock: 4/30/11

Along with this cute puppet that fits like a glove for either left or right hand, is an educational paperback that is currently on sale for $5.99. I have sold The Beeman to many teachers of Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade at local Farmer's Markets.





The Beeman

Find out where honey comes from as Grandpa the Beeman teaches the basics of beekeeping to his young grandson. This rhyming story includes endnotes full of essential facts about bees, beekeeping, honey, and the vital part that bees play in the natural world.
Ages 5 to 9 years
Written By: Laurie Krebs
Illustrated By: Valeria Cis


At the back of the book, you'll find a delicious muffin recipe made with honey, of course! The child narrator describes the gear used by the beekeeper, the process of honey production and the behavior of bee and their colony. End notes provide further information about the bee's place in our ecosystem.  

From pollination to bee dancing, this is a 5* children's book with the following poem included in the rhyming text, plus great illustrations.

 
There wouldn’t be sunflowers,
Wouldn’t be peas,
Wouldn’t be apples,
On apple trees,
If it weren’t for fuzzy old,
Buzzy old bees
Dusting pollen
From off their knees.
 
~Aileen Fischer
 
Little Talk
Don't your think it's probable
that beetles, bugs, and bees
talk about a lot of things
you know, such things as these:

The kind of weather where they live
in jungles tall with grass
and earthquakes in their villages
whenever people pass!

Of course, we'll never know if bugs
talk very much at all,
because our ears are far too big
for talk that is so small.
 The Beeman by Laurie Krebs. First published in 2002, this picture book reappears with nearly the same text but a new look. A beekeeper introduces his grandson to bees and honey production; the book now opens with Aileen Fisher’s fine, short poem “Bees” and concludes with six nicely illustrated pages of information about these distinctive insects, their development from egg to adult, bee colonies, aspects of beekeeping techniques and equipment, honey, pollination, and bee “dancing.” Pre-school to 2nd grade.
