Here is the ideal introduction for preschoolers and early elementary children to insects that are not only amazing but also critically important to humans. Inside-the-hive views of a wild colony of honey bees offer close-ups of the queen, the cells, even bee eggs. Simple verse will engage a young child, while sidebars with fascinating information satisfy the somewhat older child. Parents, teachers, and interested children will enjoy much more information about both wild and domestic hives in the back of the book. The detailed art shimmers with life, highlighting each hair or grain of pollen on the bees. A wild hive in a tree in her own backyard served as a model for the artist!

Review:

At last, here is a book ideally suited to capture the interest of young readers. I highly recommend it as a way to share both the fascinating lives and the importance to humans of honey bees and even parents will find much of interest. --Dana Stahlman, EAS Master Beekeeper, former teacher and host of gobeekeeping.com

This beautiful large-format book shows the bees living in their natural home, a hollow tree. The dramatically large drawings realistically show the bees and their comb, brood, pollen and honey. Most pages have a little rhyme accompanying the drawing. Although this is primarily a picture book, the text for each picture presents some accurate information about the life of bees. The book ends with two pages giving more details about honey bees along with several references. These pages will give parents and teachers enough information to augment the picture captions. This book is sheer enjoyment for all ages. --Ann Harman, Pres. of Virginia State Beekeepers Assn.

Vibrant colors, lyrical rhyming couplets, and accurate science all make this NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2010 ideal to share with younger students. By peeking inside a tree, you can watch a wild colony of honey bees working together, each doing a specific job. The illustrations, supplemental text, and photos at the end of the book will lure stronger readers and more curious young scientists back again and again.

Despite its target audience, both text and illustrations have been rated highly accurate by biologists and beekeepers. Teachers will use this book to illustrate life cycles, model good observational skills before nature walks, and encourage enthusiastic informational reading. The book includes a supplemental bibliography and list of websites for teachers and students. --NSTA Recommends, Suzanne Flynn, Gr. 4, College Adjunct Teacher, JASON Academy Instructor

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3–Short, simple rhyming words and phrases, printed in large type on realistic illustrations, describe the amazing life cycle of the honeybee. The vibrantly colored scenes center on a beehive hidden in a tree trunk and the grass and gardens surrounding it. Brief paragraphs in a smaller font provide more information about the insect's depicted activities. Arbo's incredibly detailed, lifelike close-ups of female worker bees performing the jobs through which they rotate during their short lives greatly enhance the text. Two pages of information about honeybees are appended. Deborah Heiligman's Honeybees (National Geographic, 2002), illustrated with simple folk-style gouache paintings, also stresses the many jobs of worker bees. In The Life and Times of the Honeybee (Houghton, 1995), Charles Micucci offers pages filled with tables, charts, and diagrams that overflow with interesting tidbits for readers seeking greater detail. A wonderful choice for sharing aloud, Mortensen's finely crafted book makes a solid addition.–Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
