Das brave Bienchen. (The Hardworking Bee)

Munich (München): Verlag Josef Müller (Mueller), (1935), no printing date, but from Bode and title list, at least 1953 and thus a reprint of the 1951 reissue; purple boards with a little grey bee walking along with her baskets underneath the flowers, plain back, little paintings facing every page, in jacket identical to boards, jacket flaps with "Bohatta Bücher"; 3.75x5.6", 12x14.5cm; np. German language small hardback.

The good little bee goes about her world, caring for her child, teaching school, and playing her violin in praise of God. These books, reissued from 1949 to 1955, have their own style, paper boards rather than pasted on plates, jackets, all illustrations. (Bode #68).
