Bumbino The Italian Bumble Bee

NOTE: This first printing of the original Bumbino book was in a portrait style (vertical). We are working with a new publisher and the reprinted version is now in a landscape style (horizontal), just like the second book. When you search for the book on Amazon, you may see images of the interior pages in the portrait style, but rest assured, the book you receive will be the most recent version in the landscape style.
