This is a wonderful book about rescuing bees. The man who found bees in his garage was a beekeeper. He noticed the bees and realized that one of his hives had split. That means when a hive gets to big to support all of the bees, the queen and half of the bees leave and find a new home. The man called in someone who specializes in bee rescues. Being a beekeeper doesn’t mean if you find a swarm somewhere that you know what to do to capture them and put them in a box. Most beekeepers do not rescue bees. If you would like to know more about bee rescues then read this book. If you would like to learn more about bees, then read this book and check out the references in the back of the book. This is a nonfiction picture book that people of all ages will enjoy.… (mais)

Children prepare for a "moth ball" to observe moth activity at night. There are sections on Moths and Light, Moths and Bait, Moths vs Butterflies, and Identifying Moths. Also, the life cycle and parts of a moth, and how to have your own moth ball, including a recipe for bait ("let the mixture rot a bit before serving"). High quality photographs on every page.

Back matter includes an author's note, illustrator's note, glossary, and resources.

A riveting photographic account of bees that set up a colony in a ramshackle barn and the beekeeper who removed the hive and transferred the bees to a proper wooden box hive. The author drops fascinating bee information throughout the narrative including why and what happens when bees outgrow a hive and how hives are structured. The process of moving the bees will captivate--who knew you could safely vacuum bees? Kids will marvel that Mr. Nelson wears no protection when moving the bees. Color photographs are attractively framed with several intriguing closeups. Backmatter includes an interview with Jon Nelson, a glossary, and brief info on the American Beekeeping Federation.… (mais)

The beekeeper missed that one of his hives felt crowded and had swarmed to a rickety garage, when he discovered it, he called a specialist to find a safer place and move them. The specialist knows just what to do and even has specialized equipment that he had patented. Soon the task was done! Next follows further explanations and even a glossary. Terrific nonfiction resource!
The photographs by Ellen Harasimowicz are clear and informative. Every public and school library needs a copy!
