About this product
- DescriptionEccentric and unusual with an appealing, gentle charm, raves Kirkus Reviews, in a starred review. Every morning, Fred climbs three flights of stairs up to his rooftop in Brooklyn, New York and greets the members of his ermous family: Good morning, my bees, my darlings! His honeybee workers are busy they tend the hive, feed babies, and make wax rooms. They also forage in flowers abloom across Brooklyn... so that, one day, Fred can make his famous honey, something the entire neighborhood looks forward to tasting. Lela Nargi's beautifully written story accompanied by Kyrsten Brooker's collage-style illustrations offers an inside look at the life of an endearing beekeeper and the honey-making process. A Junior Library Guild Selection, a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year, a Cook Prize Hor Book, and a NSTA-CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book.
