Honey Bee (Young Zoologist)

A First Field Guide to the World’s Favourite Pollinating Insect

Journey into a beehive to study honey bees in this beautiful nonfiction field guide for kids.

You might know that honey bees dance to let each other know where to find the best flowers, but there’s so much more to learn about these important insects! Turn the pages to discover the difference between the queen bee and worker bees, and how honey bees actually make honey. Filled with simple science and plenty of animal facts, this book also explains how scientists work as beekeepers to study honey bees, and how every bee in the hive works towards the same cause. It also looks at the conservation challenges these iconic animals face due to climate change and insecticides.

Written by bee expert Dr Priyadarshini Chakrabarti Basu and featuring stunning illustrations by Astrid Weguelin, Honey Bee (Young Zoologist) is part of an exciting series of animal books from Neon Squid aiming to inspire the next generation of biologists and conservationists.
