Delicious story of the amazing bees with beautiful & lively illustrations.

SPL_Childrens Apr 16, 2014

A young honeybee, Scout, makes her first foray to search for flowers for the bees in her hive to harvest. She finds a sea of beautiful blossoms and visits one flower after another, sipping nectar while spreading pollen at the same time. Eventually she returns to the hive and dances instructions to her sister bees, who fly off to gather the nectar.

Her trip hasn’t been without some danger. She has escaped from an attacking blackbird, been grounded for a time by a storm, and had to be rescued by the guard bees when set upon by a wasp just outside the hive.

The story in this informative, brightly-illustrated picture book will keep the attention of preschoolers and children in the early grades as they learn about the role of the various bees within a colony, how honey is made, and about the very serious environmental problem of bee die-off. Scout’s story is nicely supplemented with factual content, colourful illustrations and simple suggestions of how we can help “nature’s greatest pollinators”.

Raymond Huber is a New Zealand-based author, beekeeper and former primary-grade teacher.
