Flight of the Honey Bee

By Raymond Huber
Illustrated by Brian Lovelock

An exciting new addition to the narrative non-fiction series Nature Storybooks, about honey bees.

The cold is coming and Scout is on a daring flight in search of the last flowers of autumn. Scout’s mission is very dangerous, but it is also vital, because the flowers provide the precious nectar the hive needs to make honey. Can the hive make enough honey to survive the long winter months?
