Can You See If I'm a Bee? By: Melissa Garrick Edwards Illustrated by: Jonathan Woodward Did you know that there are over 20,000 species of bees and that the honeybee is not the best pollinator of them all? This book teaches children all about bees in a rhyming, whimsical way. They learn about some of the different species of bees and insects that resemble or mimic them. Children will be surprised that all bees don’t look alike. There are fun facts about some of the bees and children are also taught why bees are so important and what they can do to help save these essential pollinators from extinction. At the end of the book, an appendix offers more information about the various bee specifics and mimics, should elementary school teachers or parents wish to go into further depth teaching the children about bees. There is no other children's book like this one - take a look and see! Kirkus Review: Edwards' illustrated nonfiction children's book explores various types of bees and other insects. "What is a bee? Let's find out why they are so important to you and me!" This well-crafted, fact-filled book by landscape architect-turned-children's book author Edwards and veteran wildlife illustrator Woodward provides answers with rhyming text and eye-catching images. The work highlights the importance of bees to the planet and introduces some of the remarkably varied members of the bee family to curious young readers. The book begins with a clear, straightforward description of the insects' anatomy and life cycle and their specific roles in nature. It continues with playful but informative "first-person" profiles of a sampling of the world's more than 20,000 bee species, including familiar honeybees, less-well-known cuckoo bees ("I'm a very sneaky bee; / I use other bees to raise my young for me"), dwarf honeybees, green sweat bees, long-horned bees, leafcutter bees, mighty carpenter bees, "head-bonking" carder bees, and others. Some of the pages, colorfully illustrated by Woodward, offer fascinating portraits of "wanna bees"-insects that might be mistaken for bees-including certain wasps, predatory robber flies, hover flies ("Surpri­se! I'm not a bee / But looking like one is important to me"), and even a furry hummingbird moth. The book's final pages are devoted to more in-depth information, which adults can easily share with children who are interested in expanding their knowledge about how bees' ecosystems are threatened and why it's important to protect them. A book of entomological facts and authoritative illustrations, all delivered with a light, child-friendly touch.
