A BEE!

"The plight of the endangered honeybee is the raison d'être of this story.... Dominated by golden hues punctuated with splashes of neon yellow, the airy mixed-media art by Arsenault ( Cloth Lullaby) helps kids decipher the goings-on, in and out of the hive. Tips on how to help preserve the bee population follow the story." - Publishers Weekly, March 2018
