Hedgey-A and the Honey Bees

“We have to do something before it’s too late,

To help save bees from a horrible fate.”

Hedgey-A is a friendly hedgehog who cares for and likes helping others. One day Hedgey-A is visited by his friend Brizzy the honey bee. Hedgey-A learns that bees are becoming sick because chemicals called pesticides are being used on plants. But he knows just what to do and sets off for London to see the Queen, who he hopes can help save the bees!

Hedgey-A and the Honey Bees is the first title in the Time to Care series, aimed at exploring environmental issues in a fun way for 5-7 year olds.

Praise for Hedgey-A and the Honey Bees

“This really is a superb children’s book.” – Georgina Downs, Multi Award Winning Journalist Campaigner

“A charming book that has an important environmental message which is written well for 5-7 year old children. It has great rhythm to its story-telling rhyme, which really captures children of these ages and has a good energy to it as well as some humour.” – Louise Cannon, Bookmarks And Stages

“Awareness of the natural environment around us is vital, and bee colonies are in great trouble, so this book is extremely well timed and may start junior naturalists off to a good way of thinking about nature. Not only that, but the principles established are equally important. Kids can see that if they and their friends have a problem, they should tell someone they trust, who will then try to help them… HEDGEY-A AND THE HONEY BEES starts a series called ‘Time To Care’ which is a great message. Children, their families and educators will enjoy this little story and learn valuable lessons. Because we all need to care about others, and that makes the world work better.” – Clare O’Beara, Fresh Fiction

“Written by an author with a BSc in Climate Change and an MA in Creative Writing, this series has the potential to inspire many new, informed activists, much needed for the future.” – Nicky Hudson, It’s All About Stories
