Busy as a Bee

Written by Gale Blasser Riley

The bees are very busy and they do dances to tell where the food is around the hive, where to look for it, and how far way the food is from the hive. The bees get nectar from theplan and they take it to the hive and put it in the hive hole. The queen bee creates all the bees and when they are born they are tiney and look like worms. You will have to read the book to find out what happens next.

The illustrations are very colorful. This book is like another book I read which was called If You Give A Mouse A Cookie because the characters were interesting. THe one think that was most interesting is the queen bee. Why? Because she is the one in charge of the hive. I think this is a great book to read because it is easy to read and the words are easy to understand. My favorite part of the book is when the bees are doing dance moves to show where the food is. The book made me feel good. It makes me wonder how all the bees can do all that it takes to make honey and get all the nectar in through their anta.

I would recommend this book to primary and elementary school students. I think other kids should read this book since it has a positive message.
