Amazing Bees, by Sue Unstead. DK Canada. 2016. $4.99 ages 5 and up

"The honeybee lives in a big
family group. Each bee has its
own special job to do. Beekeepers
provide a home for the bees called
a beehive. They can keep their bees
safe and collect the honey.

Beekeepers always leave enough
honey for the bees to eat."

I thought this would be a valuable addition for today's post, as Gerald Kelley introduced hard-working bees in Benedict's story.

In Amazing Bees (a beginning to read book) from DK, little ones will get the scoop on the work and wonder of being a bee. Bees are busy as you know ... and they play a very important role in the way the world of nature works. In brief, accessible text, readers learn what makes bees so special, what they are and their anatomy, their life cycle and the work that they do for us.

There is also a selection of amazing bee facts:

Honey bees build honeycombs
with perfect six-sided cells.

Bees must visit two million
flowers to make one jar of

A worker bee makes about one-twelfth
of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.

A bee will only sting if you disturb it,
and only female bees have a stinger."

And that is not all you will learn in this well-designed book, filled with pertinent information and colorful photographs. Now, you know the rest of the story.

Bravo, bees!
