My son loved finding out about bees. He even took the book to school to show his class. This book contains lots of interesting facts in a great layout for school aged children. We loved reading and learning all about bees

This is a very informative book from the DK 'learning to read' series, and is level 2.  It's a very good non-fiction text, which is pitched very well for any child in Primary school.  Both my 5 and 7 year old loved looking through the photos!  My 5 year old was especially pleased that he could pick out some of the key vocabulary, and was excited to look at photos (amazing bee facts on pages 12+13 were a firm favourite!).  My 7 year old read it with her scientist hat on, and found the book very interesting, supplementing what she already knew about bees.  It also helped to answer a few questions she had about bees.
I really liked the way the book was laid out, and felt that the 'bee dancing' on pages 22/23 were the type of interesting and unusual facts that made the book a good read.
I think that this would be a great book for any home or school book shelf and highly recommend it!

We thoroughly enjoyed reading 'Amazing Bees'. It's got so many interesting facts and wonderful photographs. Who knew that bees were so different! It's quite challenging for very new readers to use independently but, actually, we felt that this was a good thing as it was much more of a quality reference book than other early non-fiction texts.

This book is a great way to introduce nonfiction nature books into an early readers library. Both my children around the facts interesting as the pictures helped them to understand. The way in which it is written is ideal for a younger reader and has encouraged my eldest to think about what plants she wants to grow in the garden this year!

We read this together with our 4 and almost 6 year old boys, the book includes heaps of photos and easy & big enough text for a year 1 student to read on his own pretty confidently. Not even ashamed to admit that Mummy learned a thing or two about bees she didn't know before! Lovely book.

Well who knew that bees are so different and you could learn so much about them!!  A lovely glossy informative book with great photos my 5 year old son loved reading this book.  He especially liked being able to read some of the text himself as the print was nice and clear. Bees are one of our favourite 'bugs' and this book certainly sparked the imagination and we have made some seed bombs and planted them in the garden in the hope of attracting more bees.

Books like this are great as a reference point but more importantly to let children know about actions that they can take to help nature and their surroundings.  Non-fiction but absolutely inspiring and encouraging children to think a little more, highly recommended.

A fantastic non fiction book for early readers so informative with really interesting facts. The facts about bee dancing caught my daughter imagination and joy as she copied their moves and showed everyone she knew. She had the book read in two parts so that she could look at the words and illustrations as a very young reader and like the fact it was divided in to chapters so we could split the book easily . She was fascinated by honey how it's made and how she can eat it but not her baby sister. Definitely be looking a more books from the dk readers.

A really interesting book for young children in the DK range. Packed with so many interesting facts, I learnt a lot about bees as well as did my children. A lot of interesting pictures and certainly a good book to read if your youngster want to know more about bees.

Noah read it themselves aged 6 aged 6
Amazing Bees: Buzzing with Bee Facts! 9780241225073
5 stars
'I really liked this book. I learned lots of facts about bees. I learned that there are lots of different types of bees and that they have 5 eyes and bumblebees buzz because their wings move so fast. There are lots of great pictures in the book. I liked the one with the Beekeeper suit because my grandad used to keep bees and he has a suit like it.'

This is a great book with lots of detailed pictures and facts. It tells you all about the bee and how it makes honey. There is information on the different types of bees and where they live. There is also a small quiz. There is a glossary to help young readers with the terminology. It even has a 'Guide for Parents' on how to get the most out of the book. We would definitely recommend it.

I read it to Lilibet aged 4 aged 4
Amazing Bees: Buzzing with Bee Facts! 9780241225073
4 stars
My daughter, age 4: I like this book very much because I like nature and nonfiction books. I learnt that bees make honey for themselves to eat too.

Me: This was pitched perfectly for children in the early years of primary school. The facts are given using simple vocabulary, but the book does not shy away from scientific explanation. The pace, spacing and pictures all help to build a thorough understanding of bees and I would definitely buy other books in the series.

This is a really lovely book. My 4 year old loved the pictures and the information was presented in a child friendly way. It is a great introduction into non-fiction books with many of the key elements you would want to find. I found things out about bees that I didn't know before too which is an added bonus.

Felt this was targeted at a slighter older age range to my daughter (4) but sure enjoyed it and it will be a useful reference books for many years to come. It is a good non-fiction book, which introduced both myself and my daughter to many new facts!
