With this book being a part of the National Geographic Society I was expecting to see outstanding real life pictures. But yet the illustrator chose to use hand drawn pictures. I wonder if the illustrator did this to somehow relate to children more. Or would the young readers have a better understanding with real life photos? I do like how on page there is an illustration of a bee with all of the parts of its body cleanly labeled. I think this is a cool addition to the book and helps the visual l ...more
In child-friendly language, Heiligman describes the life of the worker bee from the early stages as an egg to the later stages as a forager bee. Heiligman distinguishes the many jobs of the worker bee with intriguing details and bee-specific terminology. For example, the nurse bees feed the larva “royal jelly” and “beebread.” Golembe’s illustrations extend the text by including features of informational texts like labels and diagrams.

This book would be a good read aloud for primary grade studen

Talk about science and nature! This book is great for an intro to a walk outside to talk about nature. This book talks about how honeybees are all about the lives of a honeybee, and how one may not see how much a little fella can work! It shows a perspective of how hard a honeybee works. Although it's very informative, the texts are related in a story like form so that the audience aren't just reading a fact book, but a whole life story on a little buzzing bee.
