Buzz about Bees

Author: Merrie-Ellen Wilcox

This new book about bees is written by a woman who is a bee keeper in British Columbia, Canada. The book has an appealing layout with pictures on every page and little sectioned off areas labled "Bee Fact" and "All Abuzz". Elementary school aged children will find the book easy to read and follow and the "Bee Facts" are very interesting. The book has the history of bees, life in the hive, how bees help us eat and live and the danger bees are facing now. This is a good book to get young people interested in the plight of our bees.
