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.

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.
