About the Book

Spring arrives, the flowers open, and the garden fills with bees in this stylish counting book.

In a spring garden, the flowers are slowly blooming as the weather warms up. And as the flowers come out, so too do other forms of life, especially those all-important pollinators — bees! This companion title to Little Pear Tree is a simple counting book with a difference: as readers count emerging spring flowers from one to ten, by peeking under petals and leaves, they will also discover the same number of bees humming and buzzing about. Among the many delightful flaps, readers will be able to open the petals of a sunflower and turn a vine of rosebuds into an archway of fully bloomed flowers.
