Bee & Bird by Craig Frazier- ESSENTIAL

Frazier, Craig.  Bee & Bird, 40 pgs.  Roaring Brook Press, 2011. $16.99.  Inside cover: “Things are not always what they appear to be in this mesmerizing tale of a bee and a bird’s epic journey.  Brilliantly hued illustrations that look good enough to eat and a simple but surprising story will entrance young readers… and everyone else.  Bee & Bird combines bold and colorful graphic design with a thoroughly enjoyable game of shifting perspective.”  We thoroughly loved every character and page in this book! Page after page, we laughed, we were shocked, we were in awe. Children will never tire of guessing objects on the next page.  The colors are bright, bold, and intense!  This book could definitely be used in an art unit.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer: SL.
