This story teaches timely and important lessons about wild bees, habitat, pesticide use and native plants–heavy topics in a light and fun way. There are definitely big concepts and big words introduced in this little book. That’s exactly what makes the book work so well for a wide audience. Even though the book looks and reads like a picture book for early elementary students, the science and social concepts are big enough for adults to ponder.
