Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
You may have heard the expression "busy as a bee," but not given it much thought. After reading Milton's book, you will better understand what this expression means. Honeybees are just one of many kinds of bees, but they are special because they collect nectar to make a sweet and tasty substance known as honey. In one day, a single bee can drink the nectar from thousands of flowers. That alone sounds like enough to keep the bee busy. The bee also tells other members of the hive where to find flowers. Within this hive there may be many thousand workers, about one hundred drones, but only one queen bee. The workers not only make honey, they make the wax cells that it is stored in. The worker bees who are all female also bring pollen back to the hive, and it is used later on to feed the larvae who will eventually grown into worker bees. Young readers will learn about beekeepers, some of the bees' foes and how a new queen is fed a substance called royal jelly to make her larger than the rest. It is also fascinating to learn that most of the bees do not survive the winter and a whole new generation is usually hatched in the spring. Colorful and informative illustrations fill each page.
