Please Please the Bees read by Rashida Jones

Storyline Online is a wonderful series featuring books being read by actors working with the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. In this video, Rashida Jones reads Please Please the Bees, written and illustrated by Gerald Kelley.

Life is sweet for Benedict. Every morning he wakes up to find jars of fresh honey on his back porch. He makes honey toast for breakfast, bakes honey cake in the afternoon, and drinks honey tea before bed. But one day, the jars on Benedict’s porch are empty. The bees in his backyard have gone on strike! They are tired of doing all the work around the hive. What can Benedict do to make the bees happy and bring sweetness back to his days?

There’s a Teacher Guide pdf and a Parent Guide pdf available, too.
