Bees have been around for longer than humans – and some dinosaurs – and Milner explains why they matter.
This illustrated book focuses mostly on honey bees, their life cycle, how they pollinate crops and how many bees it takes to create a teaspoonful of honey.
There’s an amazing amount of information packed into this non-fiction book for kids aged 5+, touching on waggle dances, how to create a bee-friendly garden, what makes a queen bee and why there are now fewer bees buzzing around the planet.
Intrepid naturalists and those curious about the natural world will even find instructions on how to make a bee hotel.
The idea is to create a buzz and inspire the next generation to take care of our bees – because we certainly need them.
