Omar, The Bees And Me
When Omar brings in some honey cake that reminds him of his beekeeping grandpa, it gives his teacher an idea to make the town more bee friendly with bee corridors. Omar and Maisie discover a shared family passion as their friendship blossoms alongside the flowers.
Omar, the Bees and Me is a wonderfully uplifting story about sustainability, encouraging children to look after nature in their local communities. Omar, a new boy at school from Syria, and Maisie develop a friendship bound by their grandparents joy in beekeeping, gently and naturally introducing themes of cultural identity and inclusivity. Beautifully illustrated by Katie Cottle, each page is filled with colour as wildflowers are grown throughout the town. We love the honey cake recipe at the back, a great way for children to experience the link between what we eat and where it comes from.

Owlet Press was founded by Samuel Langley-Swain in 2018, working with authors and illustrators with a shared passion – picture books which reflect the true diversity in children’s lives. Focusing on the challenges children face today and packaging these big issues into inclusive and accessible stories for small readers to digest and discuss with friends, families and schools. This indie children’s book publisher aims to change the world one book at a time, along with the best authors and illustrators to tell these stories.
Owlet Press have always published books that are 'incidentally inclusive' from day one and look to push this further with every title. With authors and illustrators from all walks of life - diversity is the driving ethos within this publisher. Owlet believe that it is key for young readers of colour to see children like them (and for white, non-disabled children to see children that don't always look like them) in books experiencing the joy and magic of playful, imaginative stories - a belief that we share at Babipur.>
