We’re delighted to be sharing Laura’s thoughts on publication day for Princess Poppy, Please Please Save the Bees by Janey Louise Jones.
Not only does this gorgeous children’s book introduce children to the need of nurturing our environment, it is also ethically produced by Eden Cooper on Forestry Stewardship Council paper using vegetable dye inks, made in Scotland to avoid airmiles.
Children are never too young to learn, here’s Laura’s little one getting ready to settle down to his bedtime story for Princess Poppy Please Please Save the Bees.
New Princess Poppy is an advocate, activist and junior environmentalist that children will love and admire!
In Princess Poppy Please Please Save the Bees, join Poppy and her friends as they discover why the bees have gone missing from Honeypot Hill. Without the bees there will be no more delicious strawberries, tomatoes, peas or honey treats. What can Princess Poppy do to save the bees?
Follow the adventures of Princess Poppy and discover nature with her!
Princess Poppy Please, Please Save the Bees is a beautiful children’s book aimed at young readers and conservationists.
My first impression of the front cover was how attractive it is with beautiful illustrations and plenty of colour to entice young readers. I adored the illustrations and as I turned to the inside page I loved the colourful and informative map.
This is a wonderful story highlighting the crisis of both bumblebees and honey bees and the environmental costs it would have.
Princess Poppy and her friend, Honey discover that bees are in danger of disappearing and both learn it will effect honey, fruit and vegetables.
So Poppy decides to help to save the bees by organising a march to highlight this issue at the fair.
A great story with stunning illustrations, with information at the end of the book, which explains how everyone can support and look after our bees.

Following this she became a teacher – a career that she absolutely adored – and then, with her husband, set up The Jelly Club, which has become an extremely successful chain of children’s activity centres in Scotland. She still very much enjoys visiting schools and talking to children to find out what they like doing and what makes them laugh. Janey and her husband live in Edinburgh with their three sons.
