Can anybody suggest a book? I've told him everything I know and then suggested looking for a film on youtube or googling or looking in a book and he decided that he would like a book most.
So either something just about bees, or a good children's encyclopaedia/book about nature in general (it has to mention bees though or he will be upset )
He's 5, but the Usbourne beginners book I've found on amazon looks a bit too simplistic. (Although would be happy with that level of information in something that covered lots of different subjects, if that makes sense.)
There's a good old original Ladybird book called The Life of the Honeybee which I remember my father selling copies of many years ago (we had a firm making bee keeping equipment). It probably isn't in print anymore but you're bound to be able to get a second hand copy.
We have bought loads of these old books for my DSs as they're lovely, straightforward and have beautiful illustrations.
