Text and Images from Busy Bee’s Flower Friends

Busy Bee's flower friendsBusy Bee is very busy.
She has to visit lots of flowers to get nectar and pollen so that she can make honey.
Can you help her to find all the flowers?

Busy Bee's flower friendsFirst, she goes to see a poppy.
The poppy has four red petals.
“Hello, Poppy,” says Busy Bee. “Please may I have some nectar to drink, and some pollen to make into honey?”
“Why, of course you can,” the poppy replies.
“Thank you,” says Busy Bee. “Can I do anything to help you in return?”

Busy Bee's flower friends“Yes please,” says the poppy. “I need you to carry some of the pollen to another poppy flower.”
“Why is that?” asks Busy Bee.
“Pollen is special flower dust,” the poppy explains. “Each flower needs pollen from another flower of the same kind so that it can make seeds.”
“I see,” says Busy Bee. “I shall find another poppy right away!”
And with that, Busy Bee buzzes off to find another poppy.

  • It’s a lovely book. I wanted to use it to teach about what bees collect honey and nectar for, but sadly the book is inaccurate. NECTAR is used to make honey, not pollen. I am sure the book could be fairly easily edited to make the bee/flower relationship more accurate?

    • Hi Ingrid, I’ve lost contact with the author as the email bounces now, but I will see what I can do for you about this correction. We can make typo edits to help. Give me a few days.

  • Very interesting book specially for the growing kids.

  • Very interesting read. I am sure my daughter will love it.

  • Very Nice to read for children

    I found this book really cute, and also a great way for children to learn about flowers. The pictures are childlike, yet display all the necessary attributes, which can be very appealing to children. I love the activities and exercises at the end of the book.

    Also good for revising colours in esl teaching. Editor: Thanks for your feedback, I think a lot of the books, especially in our toddler and children categories make great ESL tools, I am learning a second language (my husbands first language) and so love reading children’s books in my new language, and trying to translate my own, right now I am very much still on the toddler level.
