An uplifting story on sustainability, in response to many 'heavy' green titles coming to the market that children often find intimidating.
Omar, The Bees and Me encourages children to look after nature in local communities planting wild flowers to form bee corridors. Themes around cultural identity are also explored through Omar (a new boy from Syria) and Maisie's friendship.
Offers an insight into international beekeeping and illustrated by award-winning picture-bookmaker Katie Cottle, creator of The Green Giant and The Blue Giant. Includes bee facts on endpapers and a recipe for honey cake on end page.
