is a Handful of Honey
By Giles Andrae
is one of the most loved children's stories of all time? The Three Bears is
an often requested story at our house.
Love is a Handful of Honey depicts the baby bear
doing everyday activities from wake up time to playtime to bath-time to
bedtime. It shows a parent playing with the child and sharing the fun. Going
on adventures with friends and playing hide and seek are activities which
children can relate to. Joy is found in enjoying the simple things in life
such as a butterfly tapping on your toes, flowers dancing in the breeze,
playing in puddles and a rainbow after a rain shower. At a picnic, love is
finding out what is packed for lunch and eating it all. While in the
bathtub, the small bear tells his parents about all the fun things that have
filled his day.
The parents show their youngster how the Man
in the Moon will be watching over him through the night. They tuck him into
bed and give him that last little cuddle and kiss that helps him have a safe
feeling when saying good night.
Love is a Handful of Honey is a very
appealing story with simple
watercolor pictures. There are just short sentences on each page and
rhyming words on each two page set. which will capture the interest of
the younger children. This could easily become a favorite in your house
