Explore the secret world of bees: how they live, how they work, how they support each other and their hive. DK's The Bee Book is a wonderful introduction to the humble honeybee: nature's hardest worker, and much more than just a provider of honey! Bees are incredibly industrious, brilliant at building, super social, and--most importantly--responsible for a third of every mouthful of food you eat! Find out how bees talk to one another, what it takes to become a queen bee, what the life of a worker bee is like, and more. The contents include bee anatomy, types of bee, hives, colonies, pollination, making honey, and more. Discover just how much they matter, why they are declining, and what you can do to help!
The Bee Book has such fun facts about bees. Did you know that there are 20000 kinds of bees and the smallest bee is 20 times smaller than the largest one. There are so many facts about how bees live, grow, make honey, take care of themselves in warm and cold. The end of the book is great too with the importance of protecting bees and how to make a bee hotel with bamboo sticks.
