1001 Bees is a fun, nonfiction book that gives readers an inside look at not only bees, but other creatures as well. It begins with bees and their jobs, how hives work, and swarming. As the bees fly away, they pass over flowers, wetlands, wheat fields and trees.
Each page is full of bite-sized facts written in engaging, almost conversational text. Those factoids are paired with charming illustrations full of personality and movement. This should appeal to children as old as 8.
