I love this book. The pages are big and easy-to-read, with large and detailed photographs. Stephanie has done a wonderful job with her explanation, recipes, activities , and details. The book is a fun read with something for all ages.
Awesome book for the classroom!
I love bees. I'm a passionate gardener and beekeeper. I also live on planet earth. I'm saddened and terrified in about equal measure at what we humans are doing to our planet and environment.
This book was fascinating. I've always been afraid of bees, but as a "home farmer" (aka food gardener) I know how important they are for the food we eat. A swarm built a home in my next door neighbor's tree, and a house two blocks away has two hives in their yard, so I've been more curious about what exactly bees do besides pollinate and make honey. Well, this was the perfect book to answer that question.
