The Life and Times of the Honeybee by Charles Micucci is a completely comprehensive book everything honeybee, from growth of the bee to jobs in the hive to honey production around the world.
The other book we found was The Honey Makers by Gail Gibbons-- which of course was a welcome resource! True to form, Gibbons provides close up illustrations and a wide breadth of knowledge on honey making.
Anyway, honeybees are awesome! Nonfiction is the best! And I am a major geek!! Let me just seal the deal by saying this...
I'll bee seeing you! Happy reading!
