Synopsis:

Introduces honeybees, describing their physical features, different roles in the hive, and the importance of bee pollination for the world’s food supply.

Comments:

An inviting source of information about honeybees for the picture book/early reader crowd.  Interesting text, vivid photographic illustrations, important vocabulary defined within the text as “Buzz Words.”  Thanks to the cool facts about bees section, I now know that bees can see colors and prefer blue, purple and yellow flowers.  (Not coincidentally, I have decided to plant red and pink flowers this year.)  I especially enjoyed the riddles scattered through the book.  The quiz at the end of the book lets the reader check how much he or she has learned.
