When I was little, we spent part of our summer in New Hampshire at my Great Uncle’s home. He lived in the country and had bees in the back yard behind the garden. They were surrounded by an electric fence since the bears loved to topple them over and steal the honey. I remember being fascinated by bees and the process of making honey ever since.

The Beeman by Laurie Krebs and Valeria Cis
Where does honey come from? And what is a drone bee? Told from the viewpoint of a child whose Grandpa is a beekeeper, this rhyming text offers an accessible and engaging introduction to the behavior of bees. You will learn where they live, how honey is made, what a beekeeper does, and more.
The Beeman is part of the Barefoot Books family of books. Barefoot Books was founded in 1992 by two young moms working from home with the dream of creating beautiful books that celebrate diversity, spark curiosity, and capture children’s imaginations.

Every Barefoot book is designed to open kids’ hearts and minds, to launch little people on big adventures.
The Beeman is a bright, colorful children’s book that will introduce your child to the world of bees. They’ll learn that there are different types of bees and that they each have different jobs. They will learn about what’s involved in caring for the bees so they stay safe.
At the end of the book is a muffin recipe that uses honey that is a perfect hands-on activity for you to experience with your child. The back of the book also contains more in-depth information about bees, beekeeping, honey, and pollination that would be ideal for an older child to learn from.

I really enjoy this book for the great illustrations of the real life tools used in beekeeping. As well as the useful and super informative real world facts at the end of the book that teach us all more specifics about tending bees and how a bee hive works internally. So neat!! I definitely love sharing this book with my girls, helping to connect our own backyard beehives to their story times.
It really is a fun and educational book!
My boys need to know more about bees. This book would help them to understand bees are not mean creatures
I’m sure they would enjoy it!
What a great book. Our neighbor has bees and being able to get natural honey is so amazing! This would teach kids a lot!
It definitely would!
