Featuring Mommy and Baby Essentials CLOSED


Mommy and Baby Essentials sent us this adorable book called, "A Bee in a Tree." Upon first glance I noticed that this was a very simple book, but one unlike any other book we owned. I was anxious to see what the boys thought of it.


Daddy tested it out on them for me and it was an instant hit!!! Daddy has a funny way of reading books and rhyming books are his favorite! He added many of his own rhymes to this book also, causing the boys to laugh hysterically!


As a Mommy, I love this simple, yet educational book, as it is perfect for a beginning reader.

"A bee, a bee, a bee in a tree."

Krash is 3 1/2 and reads along with me and often chooses this as his nightly book to be read. He calls it the "bee book." I look forward to using this book when we begin working with word families, it will be a great teaching tool.

You can buy your own copy of this cute book here, and while there you can browse around at all of the many other Mommy and Baby Essentials!!!

In honor of my boys, Mommy and Baby Essentials is giving one of my readers a copy of this great book!

My 2 year old came up with her own rhyme last night while falling asleep. Out of the blue she said gloop soup. We read a lot of rhyming books and she loves to tell me "rhyme, rhyme." This book would be a perfect addition to our collection.
