Lori Mortensen Illustrated by Cris Arbo

If you were to magically travel inside a honey bee colony it would be like entering another world, one that is amazingly cooperative, organised and energetic. IN THE TREES, HONEYBEES is a new picture book that takes children on a visual journey inside the hive. It hums with life! See thousands of worker bees – each one doing her job. Some are making wax, some are feeding the hungry brood, some are storing sweet honey. Can you see the combs, filled with honey and pollen? And there's the queen, laying eggs.

IN THE TREES, HONEYBEES is an excellent introduction to the insects on which about one third of our foods depends for pollination. Like a smoothly running town, a honey bee colony is a remarkable place. And because honeybee colonies have been plagued with disease recently, we are reminded of the important role bees play in our lives.

A book ideally suited to capture the interest of young readers – highly recommended as a way to share both the fascinating lives and the importance to humans of honey bees.

Ages 3-8
