With stunning photographs and simple activities, this book and (its companion Ants) will introduce budding entomologists to some remarkable insects.
Children can find out about the bee life cycle and bee bodies, how bees live and work together, and how they “talk” to one another. Simple step-by-step instructions show kids how to make honeycomb prints and a model bee. (Check your library for a copy.)
