My Thoughts on BEEWITCHED

Beetrice loves everything about bees. She even looks like a bee with her yellow and black stripe shirt. She uses bees wax in her hair. Beetrice thinks honey on her waffles is beelicious! She wants to be a bee expert. She ignored her friends most of the time while she is busy watching and studying bees while she was on a picnic with her classmates. As she is watching a bee hive that has a sign saying, BEEWARE, she stands under the hive and a drop of honey drops on her and something magical happens. She thought her dream had come true but as she soon figured out a bee life wasn't at all what she had expected it to bee.

Would you like to know what happened? Hurry and get a copy of the BEEWITCHED and find out what happened when that honey changed her life for a day!

The author never fails to entertain and amaze me with the stories she writes for our children to devour. Her creation of the character Beetrice is not only entertaining, fun, and adventurous it is educational. She teaches the child the different stages of becoming a bee. She also explores the inside of the the bee hive and what the bees actually are doing in order to make the honey as we know it to bee. Which like Beetrice says is beelicious.

I highly recommend this book to parents, grandparents, educators and librarian. Oh, let's not forget the children.

I rated this book 5 out of 5.

Disclosure: I received a free digital copy of this book from the author/KitReaders for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my honest opinion.
