      This is a cute tale for early readers about a boy who meets a bee and each of them is afraid of the other. The bee explains that it is a mason bee and does not want to sting, but pollinates plants to make food for people. Mason also gets to hear about insecticides and other issues for beneficial insects. There are lovely colourful photos on every page. At the end are a few pages of more detailed information for adults. This would be good for a class nature table or a family reading session and s [...]

      REVIEW MASON MEETS A MASON BEEA delightful story with a serious real-life message, MASON MEETS A MASON BEE photographically illustrates the encounter of a young boy named MASON, with a type of bee [New to me!] which daily pollinated 100 times the amount of a honeybee. This particular Mason bee is both verbal and voluble, and instructs his namesake on several important lawn and garden matters.The book also appends explanations, research, and links. The author, Dawn Pape, is the LawnChair Gardener [...]

      This is a cute rhyming book for children that tells facts about bees and their importance in pollinating the plants that we eat. It also tells about the dangers of pesticides and has lovely photographs of bees and flowers and an adorable little boy. I did, however, think that the photos of bees that they had drawn faces on were rather creepy. There are not many of those and perhaps children will think they are cute. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.

      A wonderful story about a boy and a bee with the same name. The bee educates the boy and the reader on the importance of insects in our world. This was a fun, fact filled book that lets everyone who reads it know what they can do to help take care of our planet.

      Get the electronic version of this book on today for free from the author in honor of Earth Day and in return leave a review on . What a wonderful message for adults and children. As an elementary teacher, I can envision using this book (a big book form would be awesome) to teach rich vocabulary, environmental awareness, and some great rhyming skills too. The only thing that would make this book even more ideal for schools would be nonfiction text features (headings, bold vocabulary words etc) [...]

      Mason meets a mason bee, is a very educational and funny little book. It provides valuable information about Mason Bees and insects in general. It provides information about how important they are to the world (they pollinate which means they are giving us food). It is very informative, it is based on very recent research: ex. research about pesticide and how it may contribute to Bee Hive collapse. In the end the book has a very informative essay for adults, which outlines the bee-crisis and sta [...]
