Thank You, Bees by Toni Yuly
A simple picture book for very young readers about appreciating nature’s gifts. On each spread, there is a simple statement, i.e. “Clouds give us rain” and then a reply, “Thank you, clouds.” The illustrations show a child enjoying the gifts of nature – wearing a hat made of wool from a sheep, eating honey produced by a bee, and so on, ending with “Earth gives us our home. Thank you, Earth.”
With global climate change, human expansion, and industrial agriculture endangering plant and animal life on a massive scale, it is more important than ever to educate our children about saving our earth. This simple picture book can help teach gratitude for nature to the youngest child.
