JUVENILE FICTION / Animals / Bears
Boisterous and buzzing, A Bear, a Bee, and a Honey Tree is destined to be an instant classic…with delightfully funny illustrations and clever, fun-to-read text, from the acclaimed author of One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree.

When a hungry, fuzzy brown bear and a hive of angry bees come face to face, everybody’s abuzz! Award-winning author Daniel Bernstrom and critically acclaimed illustrator Brandon James Scott have created a rowdy, rhythmic read-aloud that’s also perfect for beginning readers. This epic chase story features Bernstrom’s signature alliterative wordplay and verbal pizzazz, along with Scott’s expressive characters that jump off the pages. A Bear, a Bee, and a Honey Tree has the kind of high-energy, uninhibited playfulness that makes kids want to run, chase, find out something about bear and bee behavior—and learn to read!



    BERNSTROM’S ONE DAY IN THE EUCALYPTUS, EUCALYPTUS TREE WAS A HIT, and this book hits the same rhyming, rollicking sweet spot.



    WORKS BOTH AS A READ-ALOUD AND AN EASY-TO-READ, with simple, infectious, alliterative rhyme great for classtime or bedtime.



    FEELS LIKE AN INSTANT CLASSIC: Honey? Bears vs. bees? How did nobody ever write this book before? 



    PETE OSWALD MEETS JON KLASSEN IN THIS IRRESISTIBLE ART: Brandon James Scott’s illustrations have a brilliant commercial/artistic mix. The text and art work together seamlessly.
