Bee: A Peek-Through Picture Book

(3) PS In Bee, concise rhymes explain the insect's life ("Visiting flowers of every hue, / She has a special job to do"); honeycomb-shaped cut-outs in the textured, spring-hued art show the bee attracting co-pollinators. In the illustrations accompanying Christmas's classic verses, two elvish kids marvel as the famous totems accumulate around a tree; again, Teckentrup comes through with her die-cut-engineering wizardry, highlighting the holiday gifts. Review covers the following titles: Bee and The Twelve Days of Christmas.
