Little Bees by Betty and the Turnips

We owe so much to little bees, and with this song by Betty and the Turnips, we get to sing about it. Little Bees is a short song set to stop-motion animation. Together, they recognize the vital role that honey bees play in agriculture and our ecosystems.

Betty and the Turnips is a children’s music project by Gravenhurst, Ontario-based songwriter, blacksmith, and environmentalist Bet Smith. Find more of her nature-focused music for kids here.
