The Honeybee by Kirsten Hall; Isabelle Arsenault (Illustrator)
Publication Date: 2018-05-08
Buzz from flower to flower with a sweet honeybee in this timely, clever, and breathtakingly gorgeous picture book from critically acclaimed author Kirsten Hall and award-winning illustrator Isabelle Arsenault. Bzzz... What's that? Do you hear it? You're near it. It's closer, it's coming, it's buzzing, it's humming... A BEE! With zooming, vibrant verse by Kirsten Hall and buzzy, beautiful illustrations by Isabelle Arsenault, this celebration of the critically important honeybee is a honey-sweet treasure of a picture book.
The beekeeper is holding a frame which is one of 10 in a traditional hive. This is a frame that has been removed from the brood box. This is the frame where the queen bee lays her eggs and they go through stages of egg, larva, brood and finally a new honey bee! In the summer a bees life span is approximately 6 weeks where it will do every single job in a hive at one time before it dies-talk about a community effort where everyone can appreciate the other's job!
