    I think it’s cool what they did using the bees and their wings to make the letter “B”. I liked the pictures. My favorite one is the one where Barney is skipping because it’s funny. Bees don’t have legs so how do they skip? Hamilton Troll is one of the characters. He is helpful in the story because he helps Barney Bee to fly. Barney Bee is the other character. When we first meet Barney, he really likes to eat pollen and he is too heavy. He learns to not eat too much pollen and to exercise too. My favorite part of the book is when Barney is skipping because it looks funny. He looks funny in a lot of the pictures. My least favorite part of the book is when Barney Bee can’t fly because I felt bad for him. I would eat strawberries all day long because it’s my favorite food. I thought the book was ok. The story was not exciting enough for me. I think littler kids than me would like this story.

    Hamilton Troll Meets Barney Bee is a sweet, albeit lengthy, picture book with some educational tidbits about bees and an important message about nutrition and exercise. I think children between the ages of 3 and 6 who enjoy stories about legendary creatures such as trolls and sprites would enjoy the Hamilton Troll series.

    Hamilton Troll meets Barney Bee by Kathleen J. Shields is the third book in the Hamilton Troll series. This one is the delightful story of Hamilton Troll who meets Barney Bee one spring day when he goes for a stroll. Barney loves the spring season because there is so much nectar and honey in the flowers. He flies from flower to flower, gets tired, and finally rests on a limb. Barney tells Hamilton more about bees and flowers, spreading pollen, and making honey from nectar, and how he was eating way more than he should. Hamilton learns a lot of new things about bees from Barney and encourages him to reduce his weight so that he can fly more easily.

    The story is educational, informative, and is also a fun read. The illustrations are lively and colorful and they bring the author’s words and characters to life, enabling young readers to connect well with the contents in the book. It’s a good bedtime storybook and is also ideal for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Children learn the names of flowers through this story and this book will also enhance their vocabulary and teach them new things. The friendship between Hamilton Troll and Barney Bee is palpable, making their characters adorable to readers. Stories with a concept, educational and informative content, and messages are always good for child readers as it is easy for them to understand the concept and message when conveyed with the help of a story and illustrations.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme
    of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get
    that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.

    I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Chrome.

    Excellent Blog! 0mniartist asmr (http://signup.com)

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being
    off-topic but I had to ask! asmr (http://tinyurl.com/) 0mniartist
