K-Gr 2–During a trip to Busy Bee Farm, Mr. Tate and his students don protective gear and learn how the insects produce honey and pollinate plants. This exquisitely illustrated offering merges fact and fancy as the bees zip into the air and buzz a rhythmic counting song while visiting a plethora of spring-hued blooms.α(c) Copyright 2013.
