Title: Jam & Honey
Author: Melita Morales
This is a story of a young girl and a honeybee who learn to coexist peacefully in the same garden as they go about their respective tasks.
A little girl is on her way to gather berries, berries to make jam when she gets home. A little bee is on its way to gather nectar, nectar to make honey for her honeycomb. Their meeting in the same berry patch shines a gentle light on a common childhood fear from two points of view. This picture book provides a sweet way to convey even to the youngest child the importance of understanding and respecting all creatures.
