Cris Arbo used a wild hive in her Virginia backyard as the model for these illustrations. In her imagination, says the biography, she climbed right inside the hive to offer a bees-eye view of the world. Arbo succeeded utterly, and children will be fascinated by the perspective and detail. The narrative is seasonal as well as explaining different functions of the hive members. A wonderful book for libraries and classrooms.
