Booklist Review

K-Gr. 3. A little girl observes honeybees from a safe distance while explaining to readers how the bees collect nectar, communicate, pollinate flowers, build and protect their hive, make honey, feed the queen bee, and raise their young. Bees, from the writer and illustrator of Spectacular Spiders (1999), features excellent, large-scale pictures in colored pencil. Printed in uneven lines that look like verse, the first-person, large-type text frequently includes poetic rhythm and rhyme. Unpredictable in occurrence and unsatisfying in effect, the poetic elements detract from what would otherwise be a good, simple discussion of bee behavior. Four pages at the end of the book provide informative answers to questions you may have about honeybees. Here the third-person prose is clearly written and the accompanying illustrations, showing the queen, drone, worker, and the four stages of bee development, are first-rate. The clean look of the book and the detailed drawings make this a most attractive first look at bees. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2003 Booklist
