Early Literacy Fun for Little People
April: Fingerplay of the Month
Here is a good fingerplay that mimics the sights and sounds of buzz-worthy beings and the environment. In addition to the counting component, which you can use to count up or count down the number of bees coming out of the hive, the fingerplay will help children learn to identify living things in the world around them. The fingerplay also offers a great way to introduce your child to books about insects, flowers, and honey as related topics.

One, Two, Three, Four, Five!
There is plenty of buzz-buzz-buzz about books for the picture book crowd plus books for curious older readers: Bee-wiggedby Cece Bell
