Follow That Bee!: A First Book of Bees in the City
By the end of a day spent with a neighbour who keeps bees, five friends learn it's best to bee a friend to the bees of the world!
This playful book mixes narration, facts and appealing illustrations to introduce young children to why the world needs bees, and how people can help them thrive.
Pedro, Nick, Yulee, Sally and Martin are buzzing with excitement today! The five friends are visiting Martin's neighbour, Mr. Cardinal. He keeps beehives in his backyard, and he's offered to show them how honeybees live.
As the kids help Mr. Cardinal with his work, he explains how bees feed and pollinate, what happens inside their colony, how they build their hives and even why they like to dance! He also tells the friends why some bee populations are in trouble and what people can do to help. And the perfect sweet ending to the day? Honey, of course! These children are sure to remember: it's best to bee a friend to the bees of the world!
