Bees like flowers,
Look! A buzzy bee!
Sometimes they sting people,
But they never sting me.

You see,

she’s got a fluffy body,
But, don’t touch her
cos she might…

Get you her stinger,
Cos you’ve given her a fright.

I don’t bother them – they’re working,
I just watch them do their thing.

They walk around on flowers,
And stick their little faces in.

Bees like flowers,
That are growing in the ground.

Bright colours bring them closer,
And keep them buzzing round.

Bees like flowers,

And the nectar
that’s so sweet.

But,
when they fly away,
Something sticks on
to their feet.

It’s pollen and it’s yellow,
Look, it’s sticking to the bee.

She takes it to another flower,

Or the blossoms
of a tree.

So, flowers like
bees too,

“Thank you bees,”
they say.

They help to spread the pollen,
And make new flowers far away.

This is called
a beehive,

The bees
call it their home.

The queen lays her
eggs in there,
Inside the
honeycomb.

Bees use the nectar,
To make honey in the hive,

They feed it to the babies,
When they finally arrive.

Yummy, runny honey,
made by our friends
the bees,

They might give you a little bit…

If you would just say,
“please”.

So, that’s why Bees like Flowers,
And that’s why…
