Have you ever stepped outside into your front yard and looked down to see honeybees buzzing from one white clover to another? Watching them might make you stop and wonder where do honeybees go when they're done buzzing around the clover?  What's it like to be a honeybee?

The Meet Your World series delivers an enchanting peek into the lives of creatures.  Meet a little creature in your world:  the honeybee.  We begin with a chomp and a wiggle and a stretch as the bee is born.  As the bee grows, we add a lift and a carry, a squeeze and a fetch and a really good scritch scratch.

Young listeners will be invited to act out the jobs of a honeybee from the first moments of its little life on our planet to the courageous first flight out of the hive and on to the last good night.

There is something here for every child - the wiggly ones, the curious ones, the ones who build their world one concrete animal at a time and the inspired ones. How wonderful to come upon this informative picture book that does a fantastic job of putting bees in kid terms. Hopefully it will create a connection between young ones and our honeybees that make such a difference in our world.

The first in an adorable, STEM nonfiction picture book series that encourages very young readers to learn—through gentle interactivity and play—about the animals who share their world.

Swish, swoosh, fly! You might have heard the words “busy as a bee," but what do bees actually do each day? Did you know bees clean their rooms, help feed baby bees, and build the hive they live in? From birth to first flight and beyond, discover all that goes into being a bee in this charming picture book, the first in the Meet Your World series.

This playful and informative series invites you to take a closer look at the amazing animals that live right alongside you in rural, suburban, and urban landscapes across North America. In each book, words and art inspire you to act out animal actions that are not so different from your own habits. And robust backmatter offers even more facts and fun. From the animals’ families and foods to their environments and behaviors, let’s meet your world!--from the publisher
