About the Book

The Bee and the Dandelion is a beautiful picture rhyme book that tells the story of Sally, a young girl who discovers that bees are in danger and decides to rally her friends together and do something about it. There is also a section on fun facts about bees at the end of this book.

Told in bouncy rhythm and rhyme, the Bee and the Dandelion is a vibrant fast moving story for children aged 3 – 8 years of age and can be used to engage children of different ages in different ways making it an ideal book for the whole family.

This story is a fun and educational way of making children aware of our impact on the environment. My hope for all who read this book is that in a child friendly way, the story will create an early awareness into the cause and effect consequences of our actions and a love and appreciation for our planet and the creatures that share it with us.

I live in the South East of Ireland with my husband Pat and we are lucky enough to live beside the sea and have wild and mystical landscapes as our walkways. Nature is where I feel most at home, among the mountains of Mahon Falls, walking through the forests of the Glen of Aherlow in Tipperary and watching the waves rise and fall in the storms. I have been a scribbler all my life but it is now through the sea that I get my inspiration to write, especially when there is a storm. I wrap up well in my rain gear and walk amongst the passion of the elements and feel new stories being birthed within me. My goal is to inspire joy and play in children and to help our little ones discover themselves and their world through story. To this end I use my writing to instill a love of freedom and environmental values which runs through my books. I also believe in allowing each other to to live authentically and true to ourselves and our dreams. I am a self-published Irish author and a redhead. In Ireland we have a tradition of the seanachai - a storyteller who would pass down the history of their people through tales. These tales which often included trips to the Otherworld as it was called inspired my childhood and instilled in me a strong desire to tell my own stories.

    This is a beautiful bright book, with great illustrations and an important message. Children, parents and teachers alike will love this book.
    This book is very important at this very moment as our bees are decreasing because of people destroying the flowers that the bees need to make honey. We depend on bees to help pollinate our flowers and trees.
    It is told in verse which is catchy and works well. I love the added facts about bees. I learnt a few things too. This would make a lovely present for any young child.
