Hundreds of buzzing worker honeybees build a yellow structure called a comb inside a tree trunk. The comb is made up of many small, six-sided rooms that the bees make out of wax. These rooms, called cells, will be used to hold baby bees and sweet, gooey honey. Welcome to the bees' hive! Clear text and colorful photos and diagrams will engage young readers as they explore the habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of these curious creatures. Age-appropriate activities and critical-thinking questions give readers an opportunity to make observations and gain valuable insights.

Inside the Bee's Hive

This colorful book is one of six initial volumes in the Snug as a Bug: Where Bugs Live series; here, Ang describes honey bees living in a hive in a hollow tree. Each double-page spread introduces a new topic, such as the stages of bee development, the social organization of the bee colony, and the protection of the hive. Opposite the large color photo filling each right-hand page is a yellow page carrying a heading, a few sentences of large-print text, and a smaller illustration, usually another photo. Labels offer some additional information, though it is limited. For example, on the full-page, greatly enlarged photo of a bee, only the wings, legs, and antennae are labeled. Other basic body parts (head, thorax, abdomen) are not mentioned at all. Recommended as supplemental material for larger collections.
