The Thing About Bees: A Love Letter

Shabazz Larkin

Categories: Conservation & Natural Resources , General Agriculture , Insects , Lifecycles

Resource Description

“Sometimes bees can be a bit rude.
They fly in your face and prance on your food.”

And yet… without bees, we might not have strawberries for shortcakes or avocados for tacos!

Shabazz Larkin’s The Thing About Bees is a Norman Rockwell-inspired Sunday in the park, a love poem from a father to his two sons, and a tribute to the bees that pollinate the foods we love to eat.

Children are introduced to different kinds of bees, “how not to get stung,” and how the things we fear are often things we don’t fully understand.
