From School Library Journal
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.

After learning all about how bees count, readers will be counting on Mr. Tate's class to give them another environmental armchair trip." Kirkus Reviews

At first the kids thought it was strange that all there was on the farm were flowers and trees. Then they find out it is a bee farm and bees live there. Then they learn about how bees are so important to plants, flowers and us! They also listen to the buzzing of the bees and hear the bees' song.
Why I liked this book - This is a great book for young kids to learn about how bees are very important. It also talks about how bees make honey. I like that during the "Bees' song" the bees count up to ten, which also teaches young kids how to count. This is a great book for ALL ages! I love Ms. Formento's book! I can't wait to read her "These Trees Count" book and the newest book in the series, "These Seas Count"!
**NOTE I bought a copy of this book at a festival.
Written by Alison Formento, illustrated by Sarah Snow and published by Albert Whitman & Co.
