Things I Liked: 

1. First of all, let's just admire the beautiful illustrations in this book!!!! See!!!

2. Now, let's get on to the story and other things. Biplob the Bumblebee is a beautifully and simply written story to teach children of the importance of bees and other creatures big and small in our natural environment and food chain. Covering critical topics like the role of bees in cross-pollination to the use of ladybugs as natural pest repellants, this little book packs quite a punch!

3. Simply and engagingly told, this book is a fantastic aid to teach children about the importance of water harvesting, of natural measures of pest control and how each animal and bird in our world plays a key role in keeping Mother Nature happy.

4. I really liked the problem solving style of storytelling in this book, which makes little Biplob the Bumblebee seem like the Eco Warrior Superhero we all need! :)

5. This is a great book to get kids interested in not only science but also, perhaps, gardening. I really enjoyed this book and have been recommending it to friends with kids in the 5-9 years age band.

Rating: 5/5
