The Bee Tree
by Patricia Polacco

When Mary Ellen gets bored with her reading, Grandpa knows a hunt for a bee tree is just what she needs. Half the town joins the exciting chase, but it?s not until everyone returns home that Mary Ellen makes a discovery of her own: Sometimes, even the sweetest of things must be worked for. Polacco has created a charming picture book featuring a child learning from a grandparent in an idyllic pastoral setting.

In a starred review, School Library Journal said "The newest gem from Polacco's treasure chest of family stories extols the virtue of reading... Like Mary Ellen, readers will emerge refreshed from this respite, ready to seek out new adventures."
