Baboo The Unusal Bee
LLIANA BIRD and AYSHA TENGIZ
As spoken about on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast ‘Happy Mum Happy Baby’, this is a toe-tapping and dazzling picture book debut from Lliana Bird – writer, film-maker, radio DJ and co-founder of the charity Choose Love – and illustrator Aysha Tengiz.
Baboo, the only pink bee in his hive, dances alone. Then he meets a green ladybird called Lee. By sharing his dancing skills with her, Baboo becomes her friend. But it doesn't stop there: the two insects' toe-tapping talent has caught the attention of all the creatures in the garden. Finally they start to appreciate Baboo's differences and wish for their own. Baboo reassures them: we're all a bit different in our own special ways. The important thing is to be yourself.
