‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Joanna Rzezak
Age Range: 6-8
Mr Busby is a beekeeper, and his garden is filled with beehives. Bees never stop working and every bee has a job to do. In 1001 Bees readers can discover the many different types of bees, from the worker bees, who look after the queen bee, to the forager bees who gather the nectar. Find out how honey is made or follow the swarm as they fly off into the countryside and see which different flowers the bees like best when collecting their nectar.
Polish author and illustrator Joanna Rzezak has created a charming, illustrated non-fiction picture book detailing the lives of bees and the vital work they do. The lively and engaging text, translated from French, is packed with fascinating facts, not just about bees but also other insects, birds, mammals, plants, and flowers and how they all fit into the eco system. The colourful detail in the artwork provides plenty to look at and there is also an ‘I Spy’ game challenging readers to find the bee with baskets of orange pollen on her back legs hidden throughout the pages.
This is an ideal book for parents and carers to share with young children and for teachers introducing the natural world into the classroom.
