In The Trees, Honey Bees
This is a fantastic story about how honey is made by honey bees. Follow the day of a honey bee, with exquisitely detailed illustrations that are biologically accurate and just gorgeous to look at!
Gorgeous pictures, will grow with the attention span of the child. The story text is written at 2 levels: 1) a 2-year-old level, with just 2-10 words per page (short and sweet for a short attention span), and 2) a 5-year old level, with several sentences explaining the bees’ behavior in more depth. The book can be enjoyed equally on either level. It is scientifically sound.
My sons both loved the book. They both love learning about animals, so this book really spoke to their interests. The pictures gave them lots to look at, and the text was very interesting to them. I picked the book the first time, but they came back and asked for it a lot.
I loved this book. I could look at the pictures for hours, and the bee facts were so interesting. There are lots of beautiful scenes (and FLOWERS!) in this book. As a biologist, I truly appreciated all the hard work that went into the scientific accuracy of the information and pictures in this book.
This is a story about honey bees that also includes science information.
There is lots to look at and study about bees, the daily life of bees, and how honey is made. This is scientifically sound, so it feels safe to teach from it.
