This book named a lot of flowers and would be useful if the class was doing a lesson on flowers or plants. It also talks some about the weather, so a lesson could also be worked in about the different types of weather. And what makes a rainbow because the book mentioned a rainbow and how it was formed.

The pictures are telling the opposite of what is mentioned in the text and since there is a lot going on in the pictures it might be the wrong book for story time
Rhythmic text describes the carefree life of bees as they sting knees, munch on Swiss cheese, and laugh in the breeze.

If I have to read a book aloud about bees, I reckon this would be the one. Humor throughout the illustrations, rhyming text abounding with words that rhyme with "bees" and amusing repeating characters throughout story.

A hoot, although the parents will possibly be more amused at the manner that the text is at odd with the cheery words. I did not listen to the enclosed cd.

An introduction to irony, as the cheery poem is at odds with the fear the bees inspire.

Vegan parents note: Bees eat swiss cheese at a picnic.

This was cute. There's a CD that comes with it. That's a plus! I haven't listened to it yet but I'm sure it's fun.
