BeeWitched - a children's book {review}

I had the great fortune of being able to review BeeWitched by Julia Dweck

Have you ever wondered about the secret life of bees? Step inside the magical world of Beewitched, where all of your questions will soon “bee” answered. Beetrice is an ordinary girl with one simple wish: she dreams of bee-coming a bee. Beetrice reads about bees, acts like a bee, dresses like a bee, and is even a B-student in school. Then one day, a mysterious hive, with the word Bee-ware, beckons her near with one golden drop of honey. This is a bee-witching tale full of excitement and fun. Enter its pages to bee-gin the adventure.

BeeWitched is a story for kids 6 and older, about a little girl, Beatrice, who's seriously infatuated with bees.  Everything in her life is bee-licious.  From eating honey on EVERYTHING to watching the bees. One day, a drop of honey changed everything, turning her into a bee.  This was an adventure for Beatrice, to say the least.  She got smacked at by a newspaper, caught by a beekeeper and found her way into the hive.
I won't share more, because I don't want to spoil it for you!!  Suffice it to say, it is a great children's story!!
My 7yr old absolutely loved reading it with me!  And I was worried that it would be too 'girly' for him, but it wasn't!  Aside from having a girl character, it really is not gender biased, and that, we loved!

It's gotten 4.9/5 stars on amazon.  Here's what some people are saying:

The illustrations are brilliantly colorful and are a perfect complement to the storyline. Ronnie_27  |  9 reviewers made a similar statement

The moral of the story - do not whish to be anything other than you are, is an integral one and a very important one. Wanda  |  4 reviewers made a similar statement
