New Look at Bees
When a bee truck crashes in a city, there's no place for them to make a hive, until they see their opportunity. Zinnia's head. ZINNIA AND THE BEES taught me things I didn't know about bees and it also made me see things from their point of view.
At first, Zinnia doesn't want anyone to know about the bees in her hair, but when Birch, her neighbor's nephew, spots them, Zinnia must confide in him. Birch wants to help her figure out how to remove them, but it seemed as if both of them forgot about the bees as the story progressed. Instead, Zinnia was worried about finding her brother Adam and Birch was trying so hard to make a friend.
I absolutely loved the parts that were from the bees point of view. It gave us insight to why they bees chose Zinnia's hair and how they were feeling. I felt bad for them since they didn't have any place to build a hive or no flowers to get pollen from in the city. I also loved the way it ended and that all fell back into place within Zinnia's life.
Final Verdict: This was a very original and educational read that I would recommend to those ages nine and up. Bees are important because they pollinate everything and help plants and produce to grow. This book couldn't have come at a better time with how quickly the bees are dying out and we'll be lost without them.
