Thank You, Bees
author/illustrator: Toni Yuly
Sun gives us light.
Thank you, sun.
Clouds bring the rain that makes puddles to splash in. Sheep give us wool for our sweaters and hats. The honey that sweetens our bread comes from bees (thank you, bees). With spare, repetitive text and bright, torn-paper collage artwork, this picture book gives even the youngest readers a subtle sense of how everyday things are related — and inspires an appreciation for life’s simple gifts.
This gentle message of gratitude and connection, enhanced by beautifully simple collage illustrations, makes for a charming gift.
