Bees: A Honeyed History

SKU: 9781419726156

From Athena to Alexander the Great and from Egypt to Ethiopia, author Piotr Socha explores different methods of beekeeping and uncovers the debt that humans owe this vital species. His beautiful guide for children offers full-color two-page topical entries dominated by large, detailed illustrations with text running along the lower half of the pages. It covers:

  • Bee bodies and behavior
  • Hive building
  • Social roles
  • Pollinating and honey production
  • The relationship between bees and prehistoric people, ancient Greeks, and Egyptians
  • And many other topics

Bees are essential to the health of ecosystems around the world and are under threat from changing habitats and manmade challenges. Animal threats to bees are described here, as well as the collapse of bee colonies in the United States in recent years. There are descriptions and details of beekeeping throughout history and today.

With beautifully accessible illustrations depicting everything from bee anatomy to the essentials of honey making, readers will be captivated by the endless wonders of this seemingly small speck of the animal kingdom. For a curious child or a parent who wants to explain the contribution of bees to the world around us, this book is lively, fun, and educational.
