"Bees! Nature's tiny architects! Older than the dinosaurs, beloved by French Kings, Greek Gods, and bears alike! Crack open this great big book to learn more about our tiny backyard heroes!" 

— Collyn


One part science, one part cultural history, and countless parts fascination, Bees celebrates the important role that these intriguing insects have played in our ecosystem throughout the ages. From Athena to Alexander the Great and from Egypt to Ethiopia, Bees explores different methods of beekeeping and uncovers the debt that humans owe this vital species. With beautifully accessible illustrations depicting everything from bee anatomy to the essentials of honey making, readers will be captivated by the endless wonders of this seemingly small speck of the animal kingdom.

About the Author

Piotr Socha studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. He has worked as an illustrator for many newspapers and magazines.

Praise For…

"This book is also admirable in its scope, which goes beyond the scientific (anatomy,
pollination, communication, etc.) to include the bee’s place in history and culture...both whimsical and comprehensive; Socha has created what is quite possibly the sweetest resource on honey bees around."
