#BookReview The Bees (Down in the Garden) by D.C. Swain

25623292

 

This story is full of soft, warm colours that was really nice on the eyes. The colours really complimented the sweet material written by D.C. Swain.

Some of the pictures are full pages, while others are only part of the page. It felt unique seeing the different styles, and I think it worked and didn’t feel out of place. One page was the written words while the next was the complimenting picture. I think the bees were really cute and really well drawn.

There is a rhyming scheme that works really well within the story. It felt like something I could sing along to, or make a song up for.

The moral of this story seemed to be all about bees! I know I was scared of them as a kid, and never was calmed of that worry. A book like this would have made me feel a bit more comfortable around the buzzing creates.

I’d definitely recommend picking this book up as a spring or summer read for the kidlets! It’s cute, fun and full of pretty pictures! It would be especially nice for those kids that are scared of bees or animals. It’s a definite children’s must read from this reviewer!

Five out of five stars!
