Down the Road, Little Bee

by Sarah Jane Lightfoot

Spend a year with Little Bee on a search for pollen across the Australian suburban landscape.

From flowering gums in January to jacaranda in December, follow Little Bee and friends as they explore the wonders of nature that can be found just outside the door.

This glorious picture book debut from Sarah Jane Lightfoot celebrates the familiar yet overlooked sights of our local streets and inspires readers to explore the beauty in their own neighbourhoods.

About the Author

Sarah Jane Lightfoot is an experienced textile graphic designer with over 12 years of design experience. She is also a freelance illustrator specialising in watercolour and botanical illustration.

She was interested in art from an early age and rarely goes a day without drawing or thinking about drawing … in fact, she’s probably thinking about drawing right now!

But in another life, Sarah would have been a costume designer for her love of vintage fashion and op shopping. Sarah op shops (and lives) in Melbourne. Down the Road, Little Bee is her first children’s book.
