"Vibrant colors, lyrical rhyming couplets, and accurate science all make this NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2010 ideal to share with younger students."
"[This book] brings us a close-up look at the lives of honey bees . . . Lori Mortensen's text dances neatly between a very simple rhyming text for younger readers ("Sisters fly through the sky") and more in-depth prose notes explaining the science involved. That back-and-forth makes [this book] an ideal book for kindergarten and early-elementary schools."
"Children may never view honey bees in the same way again."
—The Children's Hour
