Honeybee

  • Title: Honeybee: The Busy Life of Apis Mellifera
  • Author: Candance Fleming
  • Illustrator: Eric Rohmann
  • Publisher: Neal Porter Books/ Holiday House Books
  • Publication year: 2020
  • Brief Summary: From Holiday House Books-“A tiny honeybee emerges through the wax cap of her cell. Driven to protect and take care of her hive, she cleans the nursery and feeds the larvae and the queen. But is she strong enough to fly? Not yet!”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – This could definitely be used in a science class to teach children the importance of bees to our environment and our daily food intake.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it –Rohmann’s illustrations are luminous, making the bees look real. I also like that Fleming included a dictionary of words, a summary of why bees are important to our environment, and a diagram of the bee. The acknowledgement at the top of the book shows that Fleming and Rohmann gathered their research from doctors, and researchers.
