After a busy summer holiday, Life Of A Nerdish Mum is back today with a vengeance and I'm starting off on the blog tour for Kimmy The Koala Helps The Honey Bees by Graham Swan.
Kimmy The Koala Helps The Honey Bees
This is the story of Kimmy the Koala helping the honey bees in Summertown Wood.
Kimmy The Koala is a very topical children's book and deals in simple terms about how we can help bees to keep producing honey and pollinating flowers in the future. It also covers briefly how bees make honey. I like books for children that have some educational purposes and that cover important topics at a relevant level, so Kimmy The Koala certainly ticked those boxes for me.
I thought the map was a really nice touch and it would help children picture where everything was and it could also be used as a learning tool to ask children questions after the story had been finished.
The only minor criticism I have as an adult, is that the art style was not my cup of tea. It's certainly not bad and it's bright and eye catching, it's just not in a style that I favour.
Overall a really fun book that covers an important topic and one that could lead to more learning and fun outdoors to plant your own flowers to help the bees do their jobs.
I gave this book 4 stars.
