Omar, The Bees and Me encourages children to look after nature in local communities planting wild flowers to form bee corridors. The theme of cultural identity is also explored via the friendship between Omar (a new boy from Syria) and Maisie. The book offers insight into international beekeeping and is illustrated by award-winning picture book creator Katie Cottle. There are bee facts on endpapers and a recipe for honey cake on the end page.
