About the Author:

EMILY NEYE is a children’s book author and a landscape designer. She studied English at Amherst College and landscape architecture at the University of Pennsylvania.  Emily loves learning about the natural world and sharing her passion with others, through both her writing and her work on urban gardens and parks. She plants flowers that attract bees and butterflies whenever she can. Emily lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and two daughters.
 
TOM LEONARD has worked as a freelance illustrator for over twenty years. He graduated from the Philadelphia College of Art (now the University of the Arts). In the past seven years he has focused his work on children’s books, usually with a view toward nature. He lives in Philadelphia and teaches illustration at the University of the Arts. He regularly goes to schools to discuss his work. His illustrations have appeared in the Graphis Annual and several times in the Society of Illustrators.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Youngsters won't gain much knowledge about this subject from this title and may even acquire some misinformation. The sentences are short and the vocabulary is basic. Leonard's illustrations are colorful and active; many pages are covered with honeybees at work. The information, however, is not always complete. Early in the book, readers learn that honeybees gather nectar and pollen and take them back to the hive, but they don't learn about what happens to that food until many pages later. There is no mention either of pollination or of how long it takes a larva to become a honeybee. Some oversimplifications can lead to misconceptions. Not all beekeepers keep bees to sell their honey and wax, and how do we know that these insects "shiver" in winter? The book mentions that bees rest throughout the winter but since their life span is only a few months, most won't live through the season. Readers will be challenged by the text of Deborah Heiligman's Honeybees (National Geographic, 2002), but they will come away from that book better informed about these creatures.
