SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • A Book is a Bee is a book about the joy and wonder of reading. It uses simple metaphorical text and vivid illustrations to explore the ways in a book can open a reader’s mind.
  •  The book enumerates ways in which the act of reading can captivate and engage a child, while also making use of creative imagery. The simple flow of text and the repetitive line structure will encourage children to come up with metaphors and comparisons of their own. This could make for an interesting classroom activity.
  • The text is truly a pleasure to read. The imaginative and wide-ranging metaphors which compare books to everything from a tree to a raincloud to a blanket make it both interesting as well as thought-provoking.
  • The illustrations are rich and playful. They make use of multiple styles and textures and compliment the many moods of the book perfectly.

CONCLUSION

A Book is a Bee is a charming read for children and adults alike – for anyone who has ever loved a book, actually!

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
