Backyard Books: Are You a Bee? by Judy Allen with illustrations by Tudor Humphries shows that–from the perspective of a honeybee–the backyard is a busy place. A young bee faces many challenges as it takes its place in the hive and joins in the work of the bee community.
This book is really informative and filled with fun facts about bees. It starts out by going through the lifecycle of a bee, which becomes the storyline.
Author Judy Allen and illustrator Tudor Humphries created Kingfisher’s award-winning Backyard Books series and many other successful books, including the Reading Rainbow selections Tiger and Seal. Tudor Humphries’ recent titles include Hiding and A Floating World.
