Not mighty in size, but mighty in resourcefulness and industry, the ant has crawled the earth since prehistoric times. It has dwelt in rainforest tree trunks and acorns of oak trees, beneath logs, and under sidewalks. It has protected forests by capturing insects, cleared weeds away from acacia trees, and by growing gardens has released important nutrients into the soil. Seed lifters, dirt diggers, social beings, ants have the most advanced brain of all insects! So watch where you step, especially on a warm day: a small but mighty ant may be underfoot.

To Bee or Not to Bee ~ An Exploration of The Life and Times of the Honey Bee represents a conscious and systematic selection of meaningful content that threads throughout the curriculum. Although the text's subject is the honey bee, to avoid distinctive professional paths, it combines several academic disciplines into one global topic. Students are living in a world that is complex and ever-changing. Fostering an appreciation and understanding of the benefit of multi-disciplinary knowledge is crucial and supports holistic education. The ability to make connections, to solve problems by looking at multiple viewpoints, and to incorporate information from different fields, will be an essential ingredient for success in the future. The text begins with an examination of the history of beekeeping, and today's economic and environmental impact are described and evaluated. Also studied are the honey bee life cycle, anatomy, and their society. In the Flower Power chapter, topics shift to basic plant anatomy and the processes of pollination and fertilization. The text also explores subjects that examine the contemporary dynamics of the physical, natural, social and cultural worlds. The primary threats to the honey bee, as well as past and present social justice advocates, provide enough food for thought to nurture the evaluation of present-day beliefs, habits, traditions, and values. The text concludes by celebrating the lives of many environmental advocates.All these woven themes offer various perspectives, and as all botanists will attest, cross-pollination creates a stronger plant, and I would add a much more fertile mind. The last overarching goal of this text is to provide some essential knowledge to awaken one's spirit to the honey bee's plight. It is often through our concern and compassion for the well-being of others that we become inspired to act. Perhaps in time, the collective voice and efforts of thousands will secure the honey bee's survival.

Get up close and personal with Apis, one honeybee, as she embarks on her journey through life, complete with exquisitely detailed illustrations. Beginning at birth, the honeybee emerges through the wax cap of her cell and is driven to protect and take care of her hive. She cleans the nursery and feeds the larvae and the queen. But is she strong enough to fly? Not yet! She builds wax comb to store honey, and transfers pollen from other bees into the storage. She defends the hive from invaders. Apis accomplishes all of this before beginning her life outdoors as an adventurer, seeking nectar to bring back to her hive. Candace Fleming and Eric Rohmann describe the life cycle of the hard-working honeybee in this poetically written, thoroughly researched picture book, similar in form and concept to the Sibert and Orbis Pictus award book Giant Squid, complete with stunning gatefold and an essay on the plight of honeybees.
