I Saw a Bee

Story and pictures by Rob Ramsden

A little boy is surprised when he discovers a bee. At first he is frightened and reacts aggressively, but soon he comes to understand and love his new friend.

Stylish and modern illustrations are accompanied by a simple and rhythmic text which is perfect to learn by heart and recite as a poem.

This is the first in a series of stories which encourage young children to enjoy and appreciate the natural world.
