At home in the hive or out flitting from flower to flower, a honeybee’s work is never done. Fly along and see what keeps these bees so busy.
“Young readers will be awed by the amount of information packed into this brief book. The bold, gouache illustrations reinforce the hard work and myriad tasks described. From the opening pages, bees are shown on the move, gathering nectar, feeding larvae, maturing, cleaning and polishing cells, making wax, taking care of the queen, unloading nectar, and guarding the hives…readers will learn how bees communicate, the role of royal jelly, and just how hardworking honeybees really are. An attractive addition.—School Library Journal
