Hello, I'm Celia.

0:00:070:00:09

Welcome to my lovely, colourful garden.

0:00:090:00:13

Tonight's bedtime story is all about a little insect

0:00:130:00:17

that would love my beautiful flowers.

0:00:170:00:20

Can you guess what it is?

0:00:200:00:22

It makes this noise -

0:00:220:00:24

"Bzzzz."

0:00:240:00:26

Of course! It's a bee.

0:00:260:00:28

Let's find out what our bee friend is up to in the story.

0:00:290:00:33

It's called Nature's Tiny Miracle Bee,

0:00:330:00:36

written and illustrated by Britta Teckentrup.

0:00:360:00:40

Dawn is breaking on a brand-new day

0:00:420:00:46

In the meadow, poppies sway

0:00:460:00:48

A bee appears, striped black and gold

0:00:480:00:52

A wonder of nature is about to unfold

0:00:520:00:56

In the tree tops, birds start to sing

0:00:580:01:01

The little bee beats her wings

0:01:010:01:04

As she travels here and there

0:01:040:01:06

A gentle thrumming fills the air

0:01:060:01:09

Back and forth, toing and froing

0:01:090:01:11

The bee knows exactly where she's going

0:01:110:01:14

Visiting flowers of every hue

0:01:140:01:17

She has a special job to do

0:01:170:01:20

Gathering nectar, as she goes

0:01:200:01:22

From every foxglove, every rose

0:01:220:01:25

Dusty with pollen, the little bee

0:01:250:01:28

Buzzes, buzzes, busily

0:01:280:01:31

Bee travels on from bloom to bloom

0:01:310:01:34

Drawn in by their sweet perfume

0:01:340:01:37

Harvesting flowers one by one

0:01:370:01:39

Her compass is the midday sun

0:01:390:01:43

Among the orchard's apple trees

0:01:430:01:45

Blossom quivers in the breeze

0:01:450:01:48

Carrying pollen from place to place

0:01:480:01:51

Bee always leaves a tiny trace

0:01:510:01:54

Flowers as far as the eye can see

0:01:550:01:58

Too many flowers for just one bee

0:01:580:02:02

All of a sudden, bee is gone

0:02:020:02:06

She has a message to pass on

0:02:060:02:08

Back at the hive, bee spreads the news

0:02:080:02:12

"There's work to be done, no time to lose!"

0:02:120:02:15

Listen for their gentle humming

0:02:150:02:18

The word is out - the bees are coming

0:02:180:02:21

Buzzing over the dense hedgerows

0:02:220:02:25

Past the pond where the wild thyme grows

0:02:250:02:29

Through the orchard's sweet-smelling scent

0:02:290:02:32

The bees travel on with calm intent

0:02:320:02:35

As lilies glow orange in the sun

0:02:370:02:40

The bees must finish what they've begun

0:02:400:02:43

Stopping at every flower they find

0:02:430:02:45

Leaving the gift of pollen behind

0:02:450:02:49

The bees pass over a woodland stream

0:02:490:02:52

Droplets sparkle and pebbles gleam

0:02:520:02:56

Water trickles, bubbles and weaves

0:02:560:03:00

A weeping willow trails its leaves

0:03:000:03:03

As the bees fly on through buds and burrs

0:03:030:03:07

A tiny miracle occurs

0:03:070:03:10

For every plant and flower you see

0:03:110:03:15

Was given life by one small bee.

0:03:150:03:19

Hope you enjoyed tonight's story.

0:03:220:03:24

I think our bee friends are all tucked up in their hive,

0:03:240:03:28

ready for a well-deserved rest.

0:03:280:03:30

It's time for me and you to settle down, too.

0:03:300:03:32

I'll see you very soon for another story.

0:03:320:03:35

Sleep well. Night-night.

0:03:350:03:37

Tonight's bedtime story is all about the miraculous little bee and its incredible journey from flower to flower, beautifully read by Celia Imrie.
