Though a tad didactic and not as sweet as the first, Ruzzier’s second in the Bear and Bee series offers young readers an important lesson that goes down easy. What will be next for the two friends?
After a nice long hibernation, Bear wakes up and craves some honey. When he spots a beehive in the distance, he heads right for it! Sitting on top of the beehive is Bee who graciously offers Bear some honey, but Bear is worried. He believes that bees are big, scary creatures who do not share their honey. But Bear's new friend just happens to be a bee! And Bee is small and most certainly is not scary. But do bees share honey?
