A wordless picture book that plays with perspective. Would be fun to try with kids to keep them guessing where bee and bird are.
I like picture books that utilize altering perspectives as you turn the pages, but I didn't feel like this one achieved the effect as well as others of this style. See: Zoom by Banyai
In this wordless picture book, a bumblebee and a bird embark on a travel adventure.
Great bold graphics in a really different wordless book. What a neat way to introduce the idea of perspective to young kids.

Bee and bird is a wordless picture book that tell about the adventure of a bee and a bird. It starts off with the bird and then the bee being on the birds head in a tree. The tree happens to be in a truck. The bird and the bee then fall out of the tree, but their journey continues. You don't know exactly where they are going but you can tell that that are going somewhere together. They then end up in someone's bicycle basket towards the end of the book until they reach their final destination. T [...]
As posted on Outside of a Dog:I'll admit to sometimes being on the fence when it comes to wordless picture books. Some are fantastic stories unto themselves, like Jerry Pinkey's The Lion and the Mouse and Jeff Newman's The Boys. Others can require so much reader input they're almost not worth the trouble, unless ridiculously beautiful. Still others are of a brand that is not quite fully storytelling, not quite fully concept book. Laura Vaccaro Seeger's books, like First the Egg, would fall into [...]
A wordless book that has you analyzing very simple pictures to try to guess what/who/where is going on. Answer is usually given by next page if you couldn't figure it out. Easy story to follow. I think worth trying in preschool storytime. See what they come up with.1/13/16 Used in B is for theme for the literacy moment. Each kid took a turn on a page spread and told me a color or item that they saw and then I had them write on the whiteboard that word. We had a decent amount of kids take turns, [...]
Bee and Bird has a very cute front cover and that's what caught my attention before even opening the book. My take on the book is about a bee and a bird who go on an adventure together. Wordless picture books are good to read with young children because they are able to make up their own story to go along with the book. When you revisit the book the child will most likely make up a whole new story to go along with the pictures in the book. The illustrations really stand out in the book because t [...]
A simple wordless story is made remarkable by bright, graphic illustrations. This is the story of a bee and a bird and their journey, but what journey are they on? They are in a tree, the tree is on a truck, and then could the truck be driving on the back of a cow? Then there’s a boat on an ocean, that is actually a toy boat. As perspectives shift, the epic adventure becomes more of a neighborhood jaunt. It’s a trip that readers will happily make with the pair, finding surprises at almost ev [...]
Um, so the fact that this book has no words really threw me for a loop. It's a book of pictures only, of this bird and a bee, and the pictures zoom in and out, each time revealing them in a different place and situation. So that's pretty cool. Also, the fact that it has no words means that it is universal. There is no need to translate it because there is nothing to translate other than the title. A wordless book, although kind of an oxymoron, is kind of a cool idea. It makes this book stick out [...]
Awards: NoneGrade Levels: Pre-K through KindergartenSummary: In Bee & Bird, go on adventures, most of which you don't know until you turn to the next page. From a tree, to a truck, to a cow, to a sailboat, to a bicycle, Bee and Bird never part. However, when Bee sees a beehive he flies away, but Bird stays close by sitting on top of the hive.Review: I really enjoyed the changes in perspective from page to page. On the other hand, I feel like the storyline was lacking, which is important in a [...]
A bee and a bird go on a journey in this wordless picture book, which showcases large, boldly colored illustrations presenting different perspectives. For example, large black and gold stripes on a two page spread are, when the page is turned, an upclose view of a bumblee bee seatd on top a large red area which, on the next page, turns out to be the top of the bird’s head. While the artwork is visually stunning, and would be enjoyed by preschool through second grade children, the story seems t [...]
Originally rated G by Lucy ThomasA wordless picture book is nicely presented and it will have younger readers trying to guess what the patterns, sizes, and shapes represent on the open faced pages. The vibrant, colorful illustrations tell the simplistic story of the bee and the bird and their surrounding sights. The book held the interest of the Kindergarten class to whom I read this story. They enjoyed following the shapes as they enlarged and seeing/guessing what the next picture would be. I n [...]
F is for Frazier, Craig “Bee & Bird”As reviewed by Jerry the MinimalistSummaryA graphic designer visually tells the tale of a bird and a bee on a trip.The visual style was as breathtaking as simple shapes can be. The lack of words first scared, then thrilled me. I live by my words, you know. In my opinion, the bird should have gotten top billing as this is his book.Why was it banned?I could see the blind having a problem being discriminated against, but that’s dumb and did not happen h [...]
Another wordless book. This one was better than others I've read, like last nights What If? and last week's Bear Despair. The kids and I thought the bright primary colours did very well to keep our attention. If I had nothing new to read at story time, I would reach again for this book.
In this wordless picture book, a bumblebee and a bird embark on a travel adventure.I love Craig Frazier's stories and illustrations. This is not my fovorite book by him, but still really cute.

This book was a book without any words. I thought it was an alright book. I like the meaning of it and how it shows different perspectives because you don't really see bees and birds getting along or even around each other in nature. I think the kids would love the illustrations on it, but I don't really know if they could mentally visual the book and make a story line with it as the analyze each page.
Bee & Bird is a really simple book. The pictures show a bee on a bird nose in all these different places and then the bee finally flies away at the end only to have the bird follow it and sit on the bees house. This book also leaves things up to the imagination like whether the bird and bee are friends, enemies, and why they are following each other. I liked this book and it would be fun to give wordless picture books to children and let them come up with the story and "read" it to you.
Another bright, geometric book, this one wordless. Bee and bird are friends, and go on an adventure of sorts. The changing perspectives and odd viewpoints are a selling point in this book, but I found it hard to tell what was going on at times.Primary colored art and clear lines are fun, but lack visual interest for me.Not recommended for a storytime, because wordless books are hard to do unless you're great at them!
Craig Frazier (Lots of Dots, the Stanley books) gives us a wordless picture book full of large shapes, bold patterns, clear colors, and a surprising amount of personality. Rather than leave his giant color fields plain and flat, often a subtle gradient will indicate contour or volume.Full review on Pink Me: pinkme.typepad/pink-me/201
Book on changing perspective, in the same spirit as Zoom or The House in the Night. These books always make me think of Royksopp's Eple music video: youtube/watch?v=qczr6ZI would love to see the images from this book on the wall of a day care center or nursery. I just wasn't that dazzled with it as a book.
The graphic look of the book is the draw here, and the shifting perspectives that are clever, but made me a bit cross-eyed at times. Bird is helping to see bee home - via truck, ship, etc. It's wordless and will have children narrating the journey and using their imaginations.
Books without words sometimes do a better job of expressing their ideas and story. The colors in this book are wonderful and the comic book feel to the book-- makes me want to see what will happen nextBzzzzz
Another clever perspective book with crisp, brilliant graphics. Useless with kids too small to talk and discuss what they are seeing.But older kids will enjoy this and art teachers would find it a great pick.
I enjoyed this wordless book with a constantly shifting perspective. The bright colors and simple illustrations, however, make it seem very young for an elementary school collection. While I liked it quite a bit, it's not one I plan to add to my K-5 school collection.
Wordless book that readers will have to enjoy multiple times--with perspectives changing each viewing. Bee and bird, yes---yet so much more! This title would be a nice addon for an art class or one to own to pour over in wonder.
33 months - the bright flat colors and simple story lends itself to being ideal for babies and would likely make a cute board book. Otherwise O has enjoyed flipping through it by herself but after one or two reads with an adult there's not much to say to embellish on the story.
Beautiful, graphically-stunning illustration in a wordless story with constantly altering perspective.
great picture book
