“What do bees do in their hive all day?” and “Where do they go when they leave the hive?” These are questions a young, blackhaired, white-skinned boy wonders about while watching a beehive. To his surprise, two bees appear with a magic bee suit that shrinks him down to bee size and allows him to tour the hive and experience life as a bee. Cut-paper-and-ink illustrations use shades of yellow and other basic colors to showcase how bees spend their time. A useful introduction to bees for early readers.
