The New Arrivals shelves are filled with a yummy assortment of children’s books in all sizes and flavors. ‘Tis the season for ordering children’s award books and since Honeybee alighted on the top shelf, I picked her up (gently, of course).
After reading this book, which gives a fascinating glimpse into the short and extremely busy life of a honeybee, I realized how little I had known about them. Lavishly illustrated and uber-informative, this book makes me more appreciative than ever of the gooey, nutritious goodness of honey.
Honeybee has won two children’s book honors: The Robert F. Sibert Medal, awarded to the author or illustrator of the best informational book published in the U.S.; and the Orbis Pictus Award Honor Book for nonfiction writing.
If you’re interested in a storytime with Honeybee, join the Wheeler Library of North Stonington, Connecticut for a reading.
