Five friends get the chance to visit Mr. Cardinal, who keeps bees in his back garden. As the kids help him with his work he explains how bees feed and pollinate, what happens inside their colony, how they build their hives, and even why they like to dance! He also tells them why some bee populations are in trouble, how important this is, and how we can help. This is a comprehensive and entertaining look at these real-life wonders of nature, aligning with early science curricula, including bonus information and two activities at the end.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this brightly illustrated picture book, Mr. Cardinal introduces urban beekeeping to an amiable group of five curious children. They begin in Mr. Cardinal's garden, go to a garden center to buy bee-friendly plants, visit a pollinator garden, and return to his yard to learn about his beehives. Along the way, they discover what bees eat, how they build their hives, how they communicate, how pollinators support our food supply, what endangers them, and how people can help. The story concludes with Mr. Cardinal selling honey at a local market. An appended section shows how to make a bee bath and encourages schools to plant pollinator gardens. On each double-page spread, the text carries the narrative, Mr. Cardinal's remarks, the children's comments, and facts related to the topic at hand. Speech balloons and captions sometimes appear within the large illustration to the right. Colorful washes brighten the attractive ink drawings that illustrate this helpful introduction to bees. An informative addition to Ritchie's Exploring Our Community series and a useful selection for many libraries.--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2019 Booklist"
