Perk and Bing and Squirrel's Sting (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
"Deep within a massive oak,
lived a group of honey folk.
Lively bees, who rushed around,
high above the forest ground.
Perk and Bing and Mother Bee
lived inside that giant tree.
Acorn bowls were strewn about,
catching honey dripping out.
And all was well, until the day,
that squirrel took their shells away."
High up in an old oak tree, Perk and Bing live happily in their sticky beehive. The busy bees collect honey in acorn shells but throw away the nuts within. One day, they're dismayed to find their acorns missing. Who would steal them and why? Help Perk and Bing solve the mystery and join them as they learn about caring, sharing and friendship.
Vibrant, charming illustrations and fun, flowing rhyme will delight and entertain children of all ages.
An extensive, illustrated pre-teaching glossary is included at the end of the book. This colorful five-page teaching tool will help parents and educators introduce and expand upon vocabulary found in the story.
Eight enjoyable, illustrated follow-up questions will keep children smiling as they relive the story and test their memory.
This whimsical, yet educational tale will help children see the importance of kindness, generosity and compromise in relationships.
