Summary
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.

Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* A honey bee crawls out of the hive, takes to the skies, and finds a sea of flowers. After escaping from a bird, she visits one blue blossom after another, sipping nectar while spreading pollen. Rain and hail ground her for a bit, but soon she heads home. When a wasp attacks her outside the hive, guard bees come to her rescue. Back inside the hive, she shares her nectar and does a dance to show her sister bees where to find more. 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. Huber, a science writer from New Zealand who has been a primary-grade teacher as well as a beekeeper, shows a good understanding of both honey bees and of what will interest young children. Lovelock's illustrations, watercolor paintings with acrylic and colored-pencil elements, offer distinctive bee's-eye views of the world, whether showing landscapes from the air or close-ups of falling hail and bee-to-wasp combat. One of the most informative picture books about honey bees, this is surely among the most beautiful as well.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
