Episode Summary

BUZZ! Baby Bear's in a panic over a bee in the garden, so Chris explains bees are usually harmless when left alone. But Baby Bear's still scared, so Abby says a spell that will take away his fear of bees. Unfortunately, she accidentally turns Baby Bear and Chris into bees. Oops! As Abby calls her mommy for a solution, the bees put their new friends to work. Chris and Baby Bear learn that bees collect pollen and nectar and help living things grow, and soon they're visiting a beehive, where they learn about wax, honey, and hexagon-shaped honeycombs. Finally, Abby undoes the spell, turning Chris and Baby Bear back into themselves. The spell really did work, because Baby Bear is no longer afraid of bees! You, too, can help ease a fear of bees by sharing with your child how important and incredible they really are.
