Alison Jay has illustrated a wonderful, wordless picture book, Bee & Me. The first time I "read" it, I named the little girl Alice. Alice meets a tiny Bee that happens to enter her world through her bedroom window in the big city. The two become inseparable as Alice learns to care for her friend the Bee. It wasn't until the second time I read the book that I realized I had to give Roger a name (and then I changed Alice's name to Mariah). The best thing about wordless picture books is the endless adventures that can be created with each reading. The next time I read it, Laura, Nigel and Horace (that’s the Bee) will share a new adventure.
