“Are You a Bee?” and Honeybee Bubblewrap Painting

Lesson Plans

Many people are afraid of bees but honey bees are incredible. Are You a Bee? by Judy Allen with illustrations by Tudor Humphries shows that — from the perspective of a honeybee — the backyard is a busy place. A young bee faces many challenges as it takes its place in the hive. Are You a Bee? is a 32-page book that is great for five to eight years old. Learning the way of a bee’s life will help children lessen their fears towards the insect. The book explains how bees are born and how they survive. It starts off with the bees being developed after it hatches, and how they are taken care of until the time they harvest the honey.
