When fluorescent yellow-orange is exactly what you need

the-honeybee-9781481469975_lgI 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.
