Bees in the City
Bees in the City tells how a boy decides to relocate his aunt’s beehive to the roof of his Paris apartment building. It’s a story about Lionel, his aunt Celine, and her bees as well as a how-to. The end of the book has a page of facts about bees and urban beekeeping.
The illustrations look like watercolor paintings in bright, clear colors. The pictures are really pretty. It’s also good because Lionel is a young boy who imagines a solution to his aunt’s problem (her bees running out of nectar to eat) and teams up with his friends to convince everybody in the apartment building to let the bees live in a hive on the roof. Everybody likes honey!
This book gives kids advice about something they can do to help bees, even if they live in the city like me instead of on a farm or in the country. This is a good choice for anybody who worries about the environment and wants to do something that helps people and bees at the same time.
