Wow. It’s been a long time since I’ve been blown away by a beauty like Bees: A Honeyed History. When I came upon the book at BN, I was breathless. Its massive size, gorgeous, vibrant illustrations and content that celebrates our helpful little friends are pure delight. I couldn’t help but pick it up! In fact, I stopped what I was doing and sat down to explore it from cover to cover. This is a book that as I child I would have sat for hours going back and forth over every page to ensure I missed nothing. Bees: A Honeyed History offers much to fascinate. What a joy. What an incredibly special book!
