Kid’s Book Review: Maisy Loves Bees

About the Book and Author / Illustrator

Maisy is finding out about the bees in her garden and learning why they are so important for our planet.

What do bees do all day? Where do they live?

We think little ones will enjoy learning with the adorable Maisy mouse in this colourful board book published by Walker Books.

Book Review

It's interactive, encouraging him to count bees and make buzzing sounds

Dylan: I really like Maisy books and it has been fun learning all about bees. It’s funny buzzing like a bee and I liked the surprise of the last fold-out page and seeing all of Maisy’s friends in the garden.

Mum and Dad: Dylan has a few Maisy books already, and has really enjoyed reading this one with us. It’s packed with accessible, age appropriate facts about bees.

It’s interactive, encouraging him to count bees and make buzzing sounds. It’s also teaching him about adjectives e.g. “big”, “little”, “stripy” and “sweet.”
