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!

"Of great value . . . Useful . . . Wonderful." —SLJ

You Are a Honey Bee is a wonderful resource for our homeschool library!

The illustrations are adorable; bright, colorful, and vibrant. The illustrations show a diverse collection of children, from being in a wheelchair or with hearing aids to children from the middle east. They are combined with an interactive text that is easy for beginner readers or adult to read aloud.
Thompson's book utilizes the 7 different learning styles in creative ways, like encouraging movement that engages the imagination and reinforces the active words in the text.

Another favorite part for me is the further learning and application resources in the back. Along with a glossary and facts about why honey bees are important, there is a section with fun, guided activities for children to emulate the work of a honey bee, plus a list of ways we can all help honey bees survive and thrive!
