This is a sweet little book that would suit anyone with an interest in bees. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout. I particularly liked the first chapter which explains about bees, describing their life cycle, their search for pollen and nectar and the fascinating bee dance.

The book includes chapters on what plants to grow to attract bees and chapters on hives and bee-keeping equipment. The final part of the book focuses on the importance of bees and honey throughout history including superstitions and poems.

I would say this isn’t a book for in depth information but it is more a book of little titbits.

Available now from Amazon or your local bookshop.
