Cozy illustrations of the planets, sun, and stars bring a friendly warmth to this early introduction to our solar system

“The sun is up. The day is new. Hello, Sleepy Bee! Good morning to you.” Sleepy Bee greets her day with a yawn—so much to do! From sunrise to sunset, she visits fields of strawberries, pumpkins, sweet peas, and more, gathering nectar and pollen for her brood. A gentle, rhyming read-aloud with beautiful, full-color, cut paper and watercolor illustrations connecting flower to food, showing how so much of what we eat is made possible by these amazing, hard-working (sometimes sleepy) friends.
