If Bees Disappeared
What would happen if bees disappeared completely? Artist and author Lily Williams explores how such a loss would effect not just bees' environment, but the world as a whole in this poignant, beautiful book about the importance of our most important bees. If Bees Disappeared introduces the rolling hills and lush climate of Kent, England. This idyllic landscape is home to many creatures; fluffy, sneaky, spikey, and ... small, like the bee. Though bees are small, their importance is BIG. Today there are over 250,000 species of bees but all of them are in danger. Because of disease, pesticide exposure, lack of foraging habitats, and poor nutrition, entire honey bee hives are dying. Recommended for ages 4-8.
