Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jodell Sadler
Young readers will delight in this visual and engaging title that compares a bee and a wasp. Readers will learn how to identify both visually and by behaviors. Readers will learn all about both the bee and the wasp: How to identify the three main insect parts, how each species cares for its young, how each behaves around the hive, and what each does to stay safe, what each one eats, and how each will survive. Readers will decide which one is fuzzy and which one is smooth and flies really fast. They will learn which one has pollen baskets and which one does not, as well as which one includes the subspecies, the honeybee. Readers will also learn all about their nest building skills. The main thrust of this nonfiction title is the use of a question to pull the reader through this title: "Can you tell these look-a-likes apart?" Special sections: "Who am I? Fun Facts, Glossary," and "Further Reading" allow excited readers to test their learning or log online to learn even more. Reviewer: Jodell Sadler

Meet the Author

Buffy Silverman is the author of many books about nature and science for children. She also enjoys writing poetry for children. Buffy is lucky to live in a rural area of Michigan where inspiration is just outside the window. The sun shimmers on Stony Lake. A great blue heron flies low over the swamp. Black squirrels scamper across oak branches, stuffing leaves in their mouths and bringing them to a hollow. The animals that share her yard inspire stories and poems. With every book and article she writes, she learns more about the world.
