The King of Bees by Lester L. Laminack
'What's all the buzz about? Educate and fascinate patrons of all ages with this beautifully descriptive tale from down south on the life and necessity of bees. We journey with young Henry to his Aunt Lilla's farm in the low-country of South Carolina. Time and summer pass slow and beautifully as Aunt Lilla patiently teaches Henry the art and magic of caring for bees. Henry loves helping with chores of the farm but especially loves watching his aunt work with her beehives and awaits the time he is old enough to help out. As Henry watches his Aunt, he is fascinated by her ability to 'bee speak' as she tends them and harvests their honey. Gentle, rolling, lyrical narrative by Lester L. Laminack and soft, inviting illustrations from Jim LaMarche engages us in learning all about bees and how vital they are for our environment and how important it is to protect them. A website in the note at the end also provides additional resources to learn more about honeybees. A wonderful read aloud for storytime, one on one or a great resource in the classroom when learning about bees, plants and pollination as well as protecting species. This story on "bees' gets an A!
