"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."—Boston Globe
"Simple rhymes and striking full-bleed illustrations introduce the daily lives of honey bees to very young readers and listeners."—Kirkus Reviews
"Children may never view honey bees in the same way again."—The Children's Hour
"Morning light, warm and bright.
In the trees, honey bees!
Blossoms out, dancing scout.
Sisters fly through the sky."
In the Trees, Honey Bees!
