Nonfiction Monday

Camilla de la Bedoyere opens her book EGG TO BEE by comparing and contrasting some of the physical traits different types of bees share and how they differ.  A clearly labeled series of photographs follow the development of a bee through the stages of egg, larve, pupa, and adult.  Life in the hive is gives readers a deeper understanding of the complex social life of this amazing insect and provides a deeper glimpse into bee development.

Bedoyere also takes readers through the busy life of a bee and introduces readers to the important work of beekeepers.

True to the series concept, the text is readily accessible for children and accented with illustrations featuring crisp, up-close photographs, and clearly labeled diagrams. Notes for parents and teachers provide related activities for further exploration. A glossary and index complete the 24 page paperback book.

An excellent addition to home and school libraries.
