Winnie the Pooh and the Ten Busy Bees by A.A. Milne

This hard-backed book has been our shelves for quite a while, until  Jack recently chose it for one of his bedtime stories.


It is a lovely rhyming poem – our favourite kind of story for bedtime – that counts down the busy bees, as they head off one by one.

It starts at number ten and counts down to zero.

The rhyme is fairly repetitive, which makes it quite easy for children to learn and repeat and join in.

Another great feature of this book, is the way the book is made, there are little plastic bees on each page and each time you turn the page one goes with the page you turn. Does that make any sense?! So there are the right number of bees on each page for the story.


Jack loves to count down the numbers and counts the bees on each page every time we read it.

He recognises all the Winnie the Pooh characters and loves the traditional images by Ernest H Shepard.

The images are nice and bright, and we just love the interactive feel of this Winnie the Pooh Book.

We would highly recommend it for the toddler age group.

All opinions and thoughts, when writing these book reviews, are our own.
