Ages 6 to 12 years. These busy insects have intrigued people of all ages for thousands of years. The book describes each stage of a honeybee's life cycle from egg to adult. Full-colour photographs, beautiful illustrations, and easy-to-understand text highlight: how a queen lays eggs and forms a new hive; how eggs develop into workers, drones, or queen bees; how the body of a larva changes to that of an adult through metamorphosis; the roles of workers, drones, and queens in the hive; how honeybees find food.
