Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This extremely attractive book for children shows and tells about the life cycle of a honeybee. Information is presented in sections labeled "What is a honeybee?" "Busy body," "Where do honeybees live?" "What is a life cycle?" "The perfect place," "Little larvae," To be a bee..." "Fully grown," "Mating," "A new hive," "Honeybee feasts," "The season ends," "Keeper of the bees," "Dangers to honeybees," and "Helping honeybees." Especially interesting are the illustration of the honeybee parts, the pullout picture of the stinger (called "the Sting operation"), "Skintight" (in the section about the larvae), and "An apiary." These and other clever titles lend humor to the book. The photographs are clear and labeled. The controlled vocabulary is suitable to a wide range of reading and interest. A glossary and index are included as well as a listing of websites. This is a Bobbie Kalman Book and part of "The Life Cycle" series. Best of all it is a treasure house of information that is affordable for home and school and library. 2004, Crabtree Publishing Company, and Ages 8 to 12.
