Did you know bees are involved in making blue jeans? In this easy to read text, the authors highlight the importance of bees in the pollination of plants that affect our everyday lives and the mysterious disappearance of one-third of honeybees in the United States.

The use of photography in this book is phenomenal and the message important. Facts shared in the book (like how many bees it takes to help a crop and that hives for this purpose are moved around the country) are fascinating. We enjoyed this book and the authors handled well not overdoing the scary aspect that this topic has on humankind.
Photographs and information on bees and why they are disappearing. Explores multiple reasons. Not as detailed as the great "Scientists in the Field" series book, THE HIVE DETECTIVES, but good information presented in a fairly simple manner.
This book is great to teach children all the uses of bees and an over view of why they are disappearing. I learned things about bees that I had never known before. They help make a lot of things that we use today. I really liked the pictures in this book.
A lot of questions, very few answers. While the photography is phenomenal, the information introduces but doesn't give many questions. Too much theory. On the other hand, my kids became interested in bees and the problem of CCD when we read this together. So overall, a pretty decent book on bees.
