Betsy Buglove loves bugs and is thrilled when she receives a special birthday present from her Gran that opens up a whole new world to her. The magic magnifying glass allows her to see the insects more closely and to hear them too. But not everyone shares Betsy’s passion for bugs and when a buzzy bee tells Betsy of the next door neighbour’s plan to pave over the garden, Betsy is desperate to help. But will she be able to save the bees’ home from the digger…
Bursting with colourful spreads, fun and fact-filled end papers and a fabulous story told in delightful rhyming prose, Betsy Buglove Saves the Bees is a gorgeous picture book that any nature-enthusiast will love - it is guaranteed to delight those mini-Attenborough’s of the world.
Joining the passionate Betsy and her slimy, fuzzy and buzzy friends is an absolute joy. The story is filled with important messages around being kind to nature and preserving their habitats and I love that it gently teaches children about the importance of bees and the essential role that they play in food production.
Young readers will be inspired by Betsy’s kind and caring ways and her desire to do what she can to protect the precious insects in her neighbourhood - even small children can make a big difference. Her dedication to helping even the smallest of creatures is absolutely delightful.
Grab your wellies and your magical magnifying glass and head out to see what brilliant bugs you can find!
