Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Bees buzz through the air and flit from flower to flower and they are remarkable creatures to view up close. Honey bees have six legs, wispy wings, and black stripes. They are part of an intriguing network of insects that work together to get something done. Readers get a clear account of what it would be like if they were an actual honeybee because this book tells about the life of a honeybee in first person. A few details tell that the bees in one hive have a mom called a queen, she can lay up to 2,500 eggs a day, and each egg hatches into a wiggly larva that is tended by a nurse bee. In three weeks a bee grows to its full size. Further information covers how bees get nectar and pollen and what they do with it. In addition, bees make sweet honey that they eat in the winter and that people can enjoy. Added facts, such as it takes 556 bees to make enough honey for just one jar, are included in side bars. This book from the "What is it like to be..." series is well-researched and text is short, in large print, and reader friendly. The book offers a good beginning for emerging readers who enjoy creatures or science. Descriptive and action words work well to make each word count and to maintain interest. An index, page of extra questions, and glossary follow the main body of text. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
