Can You See If I'm a Bee?
By: Melissa Edwards
Illustrated by: Jonathan Woodward
Did you know that there are over 20,000 species of bees and that the honeybee is not the best pollinator of them all?
This book teaches children all about bees in a rhyming, whimsical way. They learn about some of the different species of bees as well as insects that look like or mimic them. Children will be surprised by the fact that all bees don't look alike. There are funny facts about some of the bees and children are also taught why bees are so important and what they can do to help save these essential pollinators from extinction.
At the end of the book, an appendix offers more information about the various bee species and mimics, should elementary school teachers or parents wish to go into further depth teaching the children about bees.
There is no other children's book like this one - take a look and see!
