It is also a great book to introduce young children to the importance of bees to the environment and the food chain. Bee, Honey Bunny, and Me was written by Lavelle Carlson, a retired speech/language pathologist. Her joy in teaching was to teach early literacy and speech and language skills using storybooks. Upon retirement she has been inspired by her grandchildren to write books about animals and the environment. This story holds a special place in her heart as her granddaughter (2 years at the time of writing the book) was our "bunny whisperer" as she loved to play with the bunnies that came to her yard to be fed. The author also feels that young children can learn early in life the importance of animals and the environment. The added bonus for the author was discovering artist, John D. Moulton, who is a portraitist. He was able to capture the emotions of the characters in his illustrations. His art in Bee, Honey Bunny and Me is reminiscent of Beatrix Potter's art and also love of animals and nature. The book also provides an addendum with information for teaching young children about the plight of both the honeybees and the bumblebees. Bee, Honey Bunny and Me is a recipient of the prestigious Mom's Choice Award.
