Bee Dance
Here’s the buzz:
“Simple but information packed, the text reads aloud well. The handsome, large-scale illustrations—cut-paper collages highlighted with drawn elements—make this book a terrific classroom read-aloud choice for units on bees or prairies.
“Brilliant colors capture readers right away….The use of the second person invites children to identify first with the scout bee and then the foragers, a device that's reinforced by frequent close-ups. The tale is pleasingly bee-focused … A tiny but remarkable one-day adventure that may well ignite entomological excitement in its readers.
“VERDICT A good nonfiction read-aloud option; suitable for science and nature units
