Publisher's Description

Follow the flight of a honey bee as she searches for nectar to sustain her hive and, along the way, pollinates flowers to produce seeds and fruits.

A tiny honey bee emerges from the hive for the first time. Using sunlight, landmarks, and scents to remember the path, she goes in search of pollen and nectar to share with the thousands of other bees in her hive. She uses her powerful sense of smell to locate the flowers that sustain her, avoids birds that might eat her, and returns home to share her finds with her many sisters. Nature lovers and scientists-to-be are invited to explore the fascinating life of a honey bee.
Back matter includes information about protecting bees and an index.

Editorial Reviews

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)

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

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.
