Ehh. It was just okay...

“Queen Bee
...
My princely sons are known as drones-
Not one of those boys ever phones!
When it's too crammed,
Then I take a wing.
With such a life-
Who needs a king?!“

I would used this book in my classroom because it could spark interest in one of the children and further create questions about bees that I could use to incorporate in my lesson plans.

UnBEElievables: Honeybee Poems and Paintings written by Douglas Florian. This is a book full of poems that are very informative about honeybees, and included below the poems are description boxes full of facts that are written in the poem. These description boxes reinforce the meaning of the poem by describing what the poem means and the facts it includes.

The colors of this book were not too overwhelming to look at. I enjoyed this book and its illustrations. This book could be useful if we are learning about bees and maybe getting to observe some in my classroom, considering the whole book is poems about bees! I will definitely find a way to use this in my classroom.

I loved how each poem in this book was about bees and what bees do. I thought it was very cool that there were facts about bees on the bottom of each page, and I loved the illustrations.

Sargent's Daughters: The Biography of a Painting | John Singer Sargent, Erica E. Hirshler

Pickpick

This is the latest pick for my art museum book club, and it was actually quite wonderful! Sargent has never really piqued my interest, but Erica truly wrote a biography of a painting. It read so smoothly, covering the history of the family, their relationship to Sargent, Sargent‘s background and works, the lives of the girls in the portrait after they‘d grown, and the journey of the painting beyond the sitters‘ lives. A delightful read!

I am no ordinary bee:
I'm royalty, a queen, you see!
I don't just raise a family-
I rule a whole society...

I loved how the illustrations were very detailed with paint but almost kid-like and how each page was a different color. This made the book welcoming to read and more fun to read as well.
