The Honeybee

The Honeybee is a delightful picture book about the joy of a bee racing and chasing and zooming from flower to flower. There’s a bit of rhyme in the narration, but an excited, buzzing sort of narration as if it’s coming from the bee itself. And then the illustrations: a palette of black and yellow with streaks of neon. The book is beautiful, and filled with facts about bees and their habits. Written by Kirsten Hall and illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault.
