I am all for any book about bees. Bees are awesome. Looking out across the wildflowers in my back yard a few weeks ago, I counted more than ten busy bees working away. It made me so happy I had to go in and tell everyone in my house.
This book, like the bees, is awesome. There is a nice, lilting, flowy kind of text – a poem! – and cheery illustrations that follow a bee’s life and work. Super! And there is a masterful use of fluorescent yellow-orange in these drawings, perfectly highlighting all the important stuff you want to follow.
