Synopsis

Flight of the Honey Bee by Raymond Huber

Follow the flight of a honeybee as it searches for nectar to sustain its hive and, along the way, pollinates flowers to produce seeds and fruits. A tiny honeybee emerges from the hive for the first time. Using sunlight, landmarks, and scents to remember the path, she flies 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 honeybee, gleaning golden tidbits of knowledge to pollinate their young minds.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
