Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kim Harris Thacker
Inside a beehive, every bee has a job to do. And for worker honeybees, part of that job is to dance. Dancing is map-making in the honeybee world, for every movement a worker bee makes when it dances tells other workers where they can go to find food for their hive. This fact and others can be found in this installment of the "Grow with Me" series, which offers a basic but fascinating peek into the short lives of honeybees. Readers will discover how honey is made, how pollination occurs, and how larvae grow within honeycomb cells. They will marvel over the vivid, close-range photographs of honeybees at work. Teachers and parents will appreciate the book's simple organization, which begins with a table of contents and ends with an index, glossary, and abbreviated summary of the bee's life cycle. Also included are lists of websites and additional books that can be investigated in order to learn more about bees. While the volume itself states that the book is appropriate for third grade up, younger readers will definitely enjoy it as well. Reviewer: Kim Harris Thacker
