Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Kalman simply explains a honeybee's life in this entry in the "Ciclos de vida" series. Kalman makes it a point to differentiate between the different kinds of bees in the hive early on in the book, so that their varying roles and lives will be clear to the reader. Instead of focusing on the physiological development of the honeybee, Kalman explores the social dynamics of the hive and how this social insect cooperates with its kin to produce honey and wax and ensure the well-being of the hive. Though the book does not provide a wealth of information regarding the actual life cycle of a bee, it does cover the importance of honeybees to the environment. Kalman has made a fine book for a young reader's first exploration of the subject of bees. The entire series has inconsistencies between the key terms in bold found within the body of the text and those that are further explained in the glossary. Kalman does make note of this inconsistency, but this note does not excuse its occurrence. 2005, Crabtree Publishing Company, and Ages 6 to 10.
