Overview
From the author-illustrator of Children's Choice Book Award Winner I'm Trying to Love Spiders a plea to please give bees a chance

Not sure whether to high-five bees or run away from them? Well, maybe you shouldn't high-five them, but you definitely don't have to run away from them. Give Bees a Chance is for anyone who doesn't quite appreciate how extra special and important bees are to the world, and even to humankind Besides making yummy honey, they help plants grow fruits and vegetables. And most bees wouldn't hurt a fly (unless it was in self-defense ).

Bethany Barton's interactive cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious narrator mean this book is full of facts and fun. With bees officially on the endangered animals list, it's more important now than ever to get on board with our flying, honey-making friends

Barton (Im Trying to Love Spiders) continues her campaign on behalf of creatures that send some people into a panic. Edgar has a scribble of curly hair and a nervous lookhes the one with the bee problem. The unseen narrators enthusiastic, in-your-face lobbying on behalf of bees and what they are capable of is a big part of the books charm: Maybe I just need to remind you how weird and cool a honeybees anatomy is. Why doesnt Edgar like bees? Mostly because of their stingers and attached venom sacs, which are the cause of painful bee stings, he confesses. Bartons illustrations range from loose, cartoon-style sketches of bee encounters (Edgar got stung recently, and the image recapping the incident features labels that include the ouch, brave tears, super mean bee) to careful close-ups of different kinds of bees and their anatomical characteristics. Much like its predecessor, its an endearing mix of comedy and exuberantly delivered insider information: A single bee can visit 1,000 flowers a day, making bee pollination powers unparalleled! Ages 48. Agent: Stephen Barr, Writers House. (Apr.)
