DescriptionA tiny honeybee emerges through the wax cap of her cell. Driven to protect and take care of her hive, she cleans the nursery and feeds the larvae and the queen. But is she strong enough to fly? Not yet! Apis builds wax comb to store honey and transfers pollen from other bees into the storage. She defends the hive from invaders. And finally, she begins her new life as an adventurer. The confining walls of the hive fall away as Apis takes to the air, finally free, into a clear blue sky full of promise--and the wings of dozens of honeybees, heading out in search of nectar to bring back to the hive. This poetic tribute to the hardworking honeybee describes its life cycle accessibly and beautifully.
