Read in February, 2012

After hibernating underground for the winter, the bumblebee queen seeks nectar and a location for a hive. Then she goes about creating storage for food, laying eggs, bringing food to the larva, and laying more eggs until worker bees are born to help her. Frequently texts about bees only describe the queen’s work laying eggs, but Sayre’s lyrical text and Wynne’s informative illustrations add depth to our understanding of this bee’s role in the life of the colony.

Great for reading aloud as part of an integrated unit on the life cycle of bees and environmental issues that impact bees...and, as a result, people.
