Hello, I'm Celia.
Welcome to my lovely, colourful garden.
Tonight's bedtime story is all about a little insect
that would love my beautiful flowers.
Can you guess what it is?
It makes this noise -
Of course! It's a bee.
Let's find out what our bee friend is up to in the story.
It's called Nature's Tiny Miracle Bee,
written and illustrated by Britta Teckentrup.
Dawn is breaking on a brand-new day
In the meadow, poppies sway
A bee appears, striped black and gold
A wonder of nature is about to unfold
In the tree tops, birds start to sing
The little bee beats her wings
As she travels here and there
A gentle thrumming fills the air
Back and forth, toing and froing
The bee knows exactly where she's going
Visiting flowers of every hue
She has a special job to do
Gathering nectar, as she goes
From every foxglove, every rose
Dusty with pollen, the little bee
Buzzes, buzzes, busily
Bee travels on from bloom to bloom
Drawn in by their sweet perfume
Harvesting flowers one by one
Her compass is the midday sun
Among the orchard's apple trees
Blossom quivers in the breeze
Carrying pollen from place to place
Bee always leaves a tiny trace
Flowers as far as the eye can see
Too many flowers for just one bee
All of a sudden, bee is gone
She has a message to pass on
Back at the hive, bee spreads the news
"There's work to be done, no time to lose!"
Listen for their gentle humming
The word is out - the bees are coming
Buzzing over the dense hedgerows
Past the pond where the wild thyme grows
Through the orchard's sweet-smelling scent
The bees travel on with calm intent
As lilies glow orange in the sun
The bees must finish what they've begun
Stopping at every flower they find
Leaving the gift of pollen behind
The bees pass over a woodland stream
Droplets sparkle and pebbles gleam
Water trickles, bubbles and weaves
A weeping willow trails its leaves
As the bees fly on through buds and burrs
A tiny miracle occurs
For every plant and flower you see
Was given life by one small bee.
Hope you enjoyed tonight's story.
I think our bee friends are all tucked up in their hive,
ready for a well-deserved rest.
It's time for me and you to settle down, too.
I'll see you very soon for another story.
Sleep well. Night-night.
