Have you ever wondered where honey comes from? It comes from a honeybee hive, sometimes found in big hollow trees. Honeybees collect sweet pollen, bringing it back to the hive to make honey. Every honeybee in the hive has an important job: some of the honeybees take care of and protect the queen bee who rules the hive. There are even baby honeybees which are called brood, but they don’t look at all like adult honeybees. At least, not yet. And they’re nourished with a special sweet jelly, called royal jelly, until they are a little older and can be fed honey and bee bread.
Kiora Slate’s picture book story, The Wonderful World of Honeybees, is a delightful book for young readers to improve their reading skills and learn about honeybees. This gem of a book is packed full of valuable information on honeybees, told in a simplified format that young readers will understand. There are some interesting bits of information, like the description of baby honeybees and how different they are to adult honeybees, and the importance of the queen honeybee. The most interesting tidbit is that honeybees work and live together like one, big, happy family, each with their very own special role, each one as important as the others. The colorful illustrations help carry this story along and the vibrant yellow on each illustration will make the reader yearn for a spoonful of honey. This is a real gem of a book.
