Why Do We Need Bees?

Publisher: Usborne

We’ve all been told that bees are important but why exactly do we need them? And how much do we know about their lives, habitats and social organisation?

For a start, did you know that there are over 20,000 different types of bee? That they come in a variety of colours (even blue) and live in some surprising places, including under the ground?

Find out who’s who in a hive and how honey is made with this robustly presented lift-the-flap question and answer book. Full colour illustrations add humour and encourage engagement and with fascinating information spread across more than 50 sturdy flaps, youngsters (and adults) will be bee experts in no time.
