Buzzing from flower to flower, honeybees are busy gathering nectar and pollen. The nectar will be made into honey, and the pollen will feed their queen bee and her offspring back in the hive. Like people, bees form societies with leaders -- the queen -- and workers, and like people, their survival depends on every bee doing its part. Read and find out about bees, honey, and life in the hive.

Grade 1-3–An appealing blend of smoothly written text and meticulous color illustrations. Short blocks of large, easy-to-read print, most of which are set on the backgrounds of picture spreads, briefly describe the functions of the queen, drones, and workers; some major physical and behavioral characteristics; the bee communication dance; swarming; and the honey-making process. The realistic, finely detailed paintings match the serene tone of the text. Several spreads offer full-color views of bees foraging for food in idyllic meadows, while others are close-ups of workers busy inside golden-hued hives. The book concludes with miscellaneous facts about the insects and honey. The text omits some important information. For instance, metamorphosis is not described, although several pictures include cross-sections of developing larvae and pupae within their wax cells, and a queen is shown laying an egg. There is little discussion of physical characteristics; however, the illustrations extend the text in this regard as well. Joyce Milton's Honeybees (Grosset & Dunlap, 2003) describes the stages of metamorphosis and discusses physical characteristics in more detail, but its serviceable illustrations lack the visual detail and technical skill of Schindler's work. Despite the omissions, Rockwell's book will be a useful addition to the subject area and a great read-aloud.–Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library
