"Eccentric and unusual with an appealing, gentle charm," raves Kirkus Reviews, in a starred review.
Every morning, Fred climbs three flights of stairs—up to his rooftop in Brooklyn, New York—and greets the members of his enormous family: "Good morning, my bees, my darlings!" His honeybee workers are busy—they tend the hive, feed babies, and make wax rooms. They also forage in flowers abloom across Brooklyn... so that, one day, Fred can make his famous honey, something the entire neighborhood looks forward to tasting. Lela Nargi's beautifully written story—accompanied by Kyrsten Brooker's collage-style illustrations—offers an inside look at the life of an endearing beekeeper and the honey-making process.

Beautifully illustated book! My four year old son loves it. We stumbled upon it after reading some of Nargi's knitting books. The bee keeping process is well written for a child and for an adult. Love this, and hope they get together for another. My only negative thing is I wish the author provided a read along app for this.
