Never ever Miss-bee-having.

UnBEElievables
by Douglas Florian
A Kids Wings Top Flight Book

Watch very close each busy bee,
Buzzing from flower to budding tree.
The fuzzy buzzer's filled with glee
Bringing nectar to its honey factory!

Douglas Florian's new combination poetry and phactual picture book will delight readers of all ages. UnBEElievables is filled with punny, rhyming plays-on-words that celebrate the lives of bees.

When you read the smaller-type, inset, informative paragraph at the bottom of each page, you will get smarter as your left-brain phactual side adds facts to your right-brain punny fun side! We suspect Mr. Florian hired authentic children to paint the full-page illustrations that face each poetry page ... or perhaps they are just an expression of HIS funny side?

UnBEElievables will set your bookshelves buzzin' with fun! For all grades with challenging vocabulary!

"Morning light, warm and bright.
In the trees, honey bees!"

In the Trees, Honeybees
by Lori Mortense
A Mockingbird Award Book

Spring wings!
Bees sing!

Flower calls.
Pollen falls.

Lori Mortense's In the Trees, Honeybees looks at bees from three approaches:

Simple two rhyming lines,
Colorful, full page illustrations, and
Short informational paragraphs
to appeal to children, ages 5-8.

Group it with UnBEElievables and Bees, Snails, and Peacock Tails for interesting compare and contrast activities.

In the Trees, Honeybees will introduce students to bees' place in their world. It will be an excellent part of any K-3 library.
