Editorial Reviews

Review

This brightly illustrated picture book achieves a good deal. The lively, realistic story is enhanced with apt imagery and vivid turns of phrase. Meanwhile, small-type sentences on each spread add intriguing related facts about honey bees. ... One of the most informative picture books about honey bees, this is surely among the most beautiful as well.
—Booklist (starred review)

[T]his handsome, respectful volume deserves a place on the shelf.
—Kirkus Reviews

The well-paced text is set in warm, bright scenes. The realistic figure of the bee contrasts with soft, impressionistic backgrounds in orange and gold, blue and green hues. ... There are many fine books on this insect, but this one will be welcome in libraries that can use just a little more for children in the early grades.
—School Library Journal

The prose is polished and informative and the secondary tidbits are often quite fascinating. Lovelock’s mixed-media art is simply stunning, pairing compositions of vigorous graphic strength with delicate watercolor mottling and precise biological detail.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A genuinely satisfying early science book for young readers—right down to the index on the endpapers.
—The Horn Book

Huber's language is descriptive and gorgeously reminiscent of the bee's flight itself. Every page also offers facts about bumble bees and their behavior. Watercolor, acrylic ink, and colored pencil illustrations are bright and bold; reader's will almost feel the warmth and comfort inside the golden hive.
—Library Media Connection
