Look Inside a Bee Hive

Look Inside a Bee Hive by Megan Nicole Cooley Peterson is a timely picture book for young children interested in learning more about honey bees.

The format is similar throughout the book. On the right side of the two-page spread is a full-page color photograph. On the left are simple sentences with controlled vocabulary written at the first grade level. Children learn vocabulary words such as queen bee, worker bee, and comb.

The photographs are uniformly of high quality, although see if you can spot the bee that is not a honey bee like I did. Clue:  look how fuzzy the honey bees are.

This would be a good book to pair with Look Inside an Ant Nest by the same author.

Suggested activities to accompany the book:

1. Honey bee anatomy

2. Honey bee life cycle

3. Honey bee science activities

4. How honey bees keep warm
