The Bee is a nonfiction book. It is packed with great information about bees and all they do. There is an abundance of information and yet it is layed out in a way that is welcoming. You learn all about gathering the nectar, making honey, hives, communication and the life stages. The photographs

are very detailed and close up. The importance of bees to nature is explained.

I learned as much from this book as my children did. I was amazed at how the bees dance to communicate and how everyone is born for a certain job and they know what that job is.

This book would be great used in a unit about insects. It tells all you need to know about bees and includes information about their cousins like the hornet. It would be fun to include this book with a tasting experience. Children could taste honey and see what the comb looks like.
