Bee & Me – A little girl befriends a bee that takes her on a journey of discovery, revealing an action that every child can take to aid in conservation. The Honeybee Man – Every morning, Fred climbs three flights of stairs—up to his rooftop in Brooklyn, New York—and greets the members of his enormous family: “Good morning, my bees, my darlings!” His honeybee workers are busy—they tend the hive, feed babies, and make wax rooms. They also forage in flowers abloom across Brooklyn… so that, one day, Fred can make his famous honey, something the entire neighborhood looks forward to tasting. The Life and Times of the Honeybee – Why do beekeepers use smoke machines when collecting honey? Can a bee really sting only once? Why do bees “dance”? In concise, detailed text and abundant illustrations that range from the humorous to the scientific, Charles Micucci offers a wide-ranging and spirited introduction to the life cycle, social organization, and history of one of the world’s most useful insects.
