Publisher Comments:

andlt;b andgt;The buzz is big for Douglas Florianand#8217;s new poetry collection about the unBEElieveably unique lives of honeybeesand#8212;and the vital role they play in our ecosystem.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Come inside the honeycomband#8212;a busy, buzzy, bee-filled homeand#8212;and learn about the unexpected wonders of these tiny insectsand#8217; lifestyles, families, and communities. In fourteen funny, fact-filled honeybee poems and paintings, Douglas Florian explores the natural history of these often-unappreciated critters, revealing them to be a totally cooland#8212;and totally importantand#8212;part of our ecosystem. Indeed, these buzzy bugs have been in the spotlight lately as wild bee populations are dwindling, honey prices are rising, and beekeeping has become a popular hobby.

Review:

"In this high-spirited and lyrical homage to bees, smudgy paintings that resemble a child's chalkboard drawings pair with collage elements to tenderly anthropomorphize the insects. 'I'm a lover of clover./ A seeker of scent./ A zigzag flyover — / A thing heaven-sent,' announces one bee, hovering over a daisy. The queen bee appears in a jeweled crown and pink robe, holding a mobile phone: 'My doting daughters feed my belly,/ And I was raised on royal jelly.' Florian also includes descriptions of bee behavior ('One of bees' most important roles in nature is a process called pollination'), which add a touch of biology to his tableaus. Ages 5 — up."
