School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-This attractive fictional account follows the life of a queen bumblebee, from the day she awakens from hibernation in spring and seeks a nesting place to summer's end when she crawls underground to escape the cold of winter. Bumblebee's diet, her nest-building and nectar-gathering techniques, and the growth of the bee colony are described in both the text and in the handsome, realistically rendered, double-page paintings that feature larger-than-life insects and flowers. This simple nature lesson, used in a storytime setting, could be followed up with a photo-essay on the bumblebee and a trek outdoors to observe some of these fascinating insects in action.-Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
