A Season To Bee

PreS-Gr 2—Bright illustrations reveal the hottest trends for this season as told by Miss V. McQueen, editor of Buzz fashion magazine. As members of the press ask questions, McQueen goes through each color in the rainbow and gives a rhyming phrase to endorse wearing that hue. "Bee bold like the sun/that melts snow…wear GOLD!" Each spread shows off stylish bugs on the catwalk, featuring outfits, lights, and backgrounds in that color. When pressed at the end and asked, "What's the most important thing of all to be?" the queen bee replies: "YOU!"
VERDICT A "chic introduction to the colors" and a positive message make this book a fun but additional purchase for most collections.
