This book follows a bee and shows her journey out to bring nectar back for her family. It talks about flight and what her job is throughout this time. I really like this book because it tells the story of this bee, then gives an informational fact at the end of each page which is tied to what was written about in that page. It would say it can be sophisticated, but simple, meaning that it can be used at a lot of different age levels and be beneficial. I would use this in the classroom as part of a unit on bees or insects and focus in on bees. We could do the pollinator engineering challenge with it and maybe read the Magic School Bus book on bees the day before or the day after to give students other information on bees. ( )

I liked how it told the story of a bee named Scout and makes you care about her. The book has vivid details and suspense that keep the reader engaged. I liked how it also had scientific facts about bees on each page that connect to the story. This is helpful to both teach literacy standards and science standards. The end of the book has a message about how to save bees as they are dying out which connects to solving real-world problems.
I could use this book in a unit on bees or insects. I could also have students problem solve about how to save bees and do a project where we implement some of their solutions in the community. ( )

A brief summary:
This book follows a bee named Scout as she leaves her crowded hive and enters the outside world for the first time. As scout begins to fly, she is enchanted by a scent that leads her to a meadow of flowers. Suddenly, a blackbird swoops down and tries to attack Scout. Scout escapes and heads toward the meadow of flowers. She finds a flower to land on and uses her spoon like tongue to sip the nectar from it while spreading pollen along the way. When she is finished she is surprised to see a thunderous rainstorm begins to batter down around her. The rainstorm passes and Scout heads home. Outside the hive she is attacked by a wasp, but is saved by a squad of guard bees that are protecting the hive. Inside the hive, Scout shares her nectar and her stories of the meadow with her sister bees. While her sister bees go off to find more nectar in the meadow of flowers, Scout gives her nectar to the house bees and visits the nursery where she is cleaned by nursery bees and eventually takes a well deserved rest.

My personal reaction:
I like this book because it teaches about honey bees through Scout's journey while supplementing her story with different facts about honey bees on each page. In this way, the reader is engaged in a story that takes a few twists and turns (getting attacked by both a crow and a yellow jacket) while learning factual information on the lives of honey bees. I also find value in how the ending pages provide an index for the reader to look up specific characteristic of honey bees that were mentioned throughout the book as well as information on how to "Save the bees!"

A couple of uses:
- Read this book as a class to compliment the book Jam & Honey. This will give a closer look on how the bee in Jam & Honey was able to take nectar from the flowers in the park and make the honey that the girl was able to enjoy on her toast.
- Use this book for an interactive read aloud at the beginning of a unit on insects. Give students the opportunity to not only study honey bees, but other insects that are native to their region, such as lady bugs, crickets, ants, etc. Have students explore the different lives of these insects and then come together as a class to share information.

Scout, a female bee, leaves the comfort of her hive to scout out flowers to pollenate. She buzzes her way to a beautiful meadow of delicious, blue flowers. Upon narrowly escaping a ravenous bird, Scout is able to gather some pollen on her magnetic body. She returns home to tell the others about her discovery, but on the way, has to hide from a rainstorm, and fight through a gang of wasps. Once arriving back at the hive, Scout performs a "bee dance", informing the others about the flower meadow. As the other bees fly off to Scout's discovery, Scout watches as other bees make honey for the colony. On the bottom of each page, there is a sentence or two explaining facts about bees that go along with the part in the story. For example, when Scout discovers the meadow of flowers, readers learn that bees have a powerful sense of smell and that they pick up scents with their antennae. I love how students can learn about bees through a story, rather than just strictly reading facts about bees. Information is presented in the story, and then additional information is also provided too stimulate further interest and curiosity in bees. This book begins explaining different kinds of jobs that the bees have, but focuses on one job in particular, the bee who scouts out flowers. However, other jobs, such as house bees, are also mentioned.

This is one of my favorite informational books that I have read because of it's story-like appeal to it. The author tells the story of a scout bee while providing specific information about bees. This makes it engaging and fun to read. It doesn't feel like I was strictly reading an informational book because I was intrigued by the story itself.

MEDIA: Watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil
I love the illustrations in this book. The colors are warm and bright, adding to the adventurous tone of the story.

GENRE: Informational
This book presents factual information about honey bees in a creative and engaging way. Readers can follow along with Scout, and learn how bees bring back pollen to the hive and how honey is made. I think the author of this book does an excellent job of writing the perfect balance of facts and story-like elements, making it easy and fun to read.

(1) Students can use this book during an insect project. If a student is researching honey bees, they can read this book to learn more information about their chosen topic.
(2) Now that students have learned about bees that "scout" out flowers, they can research one of the other jobs that bees have.

A great introduction to what honey bees do told through the perspective of a bee at work. Engaging, informative and handsomely illustrated. ( )
