Back of Book:
With zooming, vibrant verse by Kirsten Hall and buzzy, beautiful illustrations by Isabelle Arsenault, this celebration of the critically important honeybee is a honey-sweet treasure of a picture book.
I love finding engaging and informational nonfiction picture books that I can share with my students. The Honeybee by Kirsten Hall is a fantastic look at the life and job of a honeybee. The rhyming scheme allows readers to follow along and enjoy the story. I loved that the book follows the bee through all the seasons. It shows readers the many aspects of bees work through each season. The book also captures the beauty and mystery of the dance that bees do to draw others to the nectar. The illustrations are soft and whimsical. The back of the book has a wonderful note from the author as well as several facts about bees. I think this is should be in every elementary library and classroom.
