Discover the secret life of bees, from queens to the waggle dance, hives to honey, beekeeping, and why bees need our help.

Buzz into Being a Bee to discover more about this incredible insect.

Buzzing from flower to flower, and making delicious honey to eat, bees have endless child appeal. But there's even more to bees than meets the eye... Buzz into Being a Bee to discover more about this incredible insect.

Children will love learning about life in the hive, bee families, and how older bees work together to look after and raise baby bees. They can find out about beekeeping, how and why bees make honey, and how they dance to communicate with other bees.

The book also gently introduces children to the idea of conservation - explaining why bees are in danger, the need to protect them, and all the ways we can help, from planting wild flowers to buying local honey.

Gentle engaging text, and bright, captivating artwork will ensure children finish the book as bee experts!
