Pedro, Nico, Ollie, Sophie et Martin bourdonnent d'excitation aujourd'hui. Les cinq amis rendent visite au voisin de Martin, M. Cardinal, qui a des ruches dans sa cour.

Grâce aux enseignements de M. Cardinal, les lecteurs découvriront comment les abeilles se nourrissent et répandent le pollen, comment elles interagissent à l'intérieur de leur colonie et comment elles construisent leur ruche, entre autres. Les lecteurs apprendront également pourquoi les populations d'abeilles sont en déclin et comment les humains peuvent les aider.

Ce livre divertissant propose un mélange de narration, de faits scientifiques et d'illustrations attrayantes pour mettre en valeur l'importance des abeilles dans notre monde. Il inclut aussi un glossaire et deux activités amusantes pour consolider les apprentissages!


Pedro, Nick, Yulee, Sally, and Martin are buzzing with excitement today! The five friends are visiting Martin's neighbour, Mr. Cardinal. He keeps beehives in his backyard, and he's offered to show them how honeybees live. He explains how bees feed and pollinate, what happens inside their colony, how they build their hives, and even why they like to dance! He also tells the friends why some bee populations are in trouble, and what people can do to help. And the perfect sweet ending to the day? Honey, of course!

This playful book mixes narration, facts, and appealing illustrations to introduce young children to why the world needs bees, and how people can help them thrive. Also includes a glossary and two activities that can be done at home or school.

Original title: Follow That Bee!
