Imagine a world without bees. Not only would it be less colourful - with fewer wildflowers and flowering plants - it would be less fruitful as well. A world without bees would mean a world where the food supply would be significantly diminished. Global bee researcher Laurence Packer estimates that bees are responsible for 1/3 of our food supply.

Buzz About Bees is the latest addition to the series that includes Lowdown on Earthworms and follows the same formula offering an in-depth look at an endangered and vital part of the natural world.

Accompanying information about the history, social structure and science behind the world of bees and honey are conservation activities to make the world a place where hives of bees can thrive.

Reviews:
"With punny titles such as "UnBEE-lievable Body Parts" and "Let Me BEE: I'm BUZZ-y Working",Buzz About Bees takes an upbeat, yet serious, approach to its topic... Absorbing, cheerful, and easy to read."
Recommended.
-- CM Magazine

"We really liked Buzz About Bees by Kari-Lynn Winters and would recommend it to anyone who loves nature and wants to take care of it. My sister and I are both home schooled and we were able to include this fun book as part of our science curriculum."
-- Mason (age 11) and Emilee (age 12), Reader Views Kids

This book was very interesting since it told about so many different bees and it teaches a lot about the lifestyle of a bee. I even sketched a realistic picture of a bee.

The book has a honey/lemon gargle recipe for soothing a stinging throat. This recipe came in handy because I had a stinging throat when I read the book.

I also learned about the bee's body parts and how life would be without bees. As Albert Einstein once stated, "If bees disappeared, humans would have only 4 years left to live."
