Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"This book is also admirable in its scope, which goes beyond the scientific (anatomy,
pollination, communication, etc.) to include the bee's place in history and culture...both whimsical and comprehensive; Socha has created what is quite possibly the sweetest resource on honey bees around."--Booklist
