Texas Wildflowers

When Hamilton Troll meets Barney Bee curiosity and imagination takes over. In this story Hamilton hears the loud buzzing of bee frolicking to and from various wildflowers and so he strikes up a conversation with him.

Throughout the story, Hamilton learns that bees are colorblind – they can’t see the color red, and that male drone bees don’t sting. Hamilton also wonders what he would do if he had wings, where would he go, what would he see?

The story takes a turn when Barney lifts off a flower and promptly drops to the ground. The message of eat right and exercise is touched upon.

At the end of the book, the author showcases the various Texas wildflowers Barney visited in the story and provides their names so when young children see those flowers in bloom they will be able to point them out. A great book for springtime.
