The Book Lovers

Learning about pollination from the safety of the washing basket - as you do!
Learning about pollination from the safety of the washing basket – as you do!

It has been a huge pleasure for me to see children enjoying my stories and to hear them say “Can you read it again please?” (or “Again, again” from a younger one).

I was pleasantly surprised to see how interested my two year old grandchildren are in Michelle and the Bumblebee. This story seems to have appeal across the ages, and appeals to flower and bee lovers as well as anyone who likes to read a true story. When I wrote the text from Michelle’s real life story notes I imagined children from about 4 to 8 or 9 enjoying it. In reality the age range that it appeals to has been much wider. Thank you Michelle.

“I hope you will be OK, Mr Bumble Bee”, said Michelle.
“It still gets a bit chilly at night”.

Michelle covered his hiding place with some more grass to help protect him from the cold.
