The Honeybee Man

The Honeybee Man

Every morning, Fred climbs three flights of stairs up to his rooftop in Brooklyn, New York, and greets the membors of his enormous family. "Good morning, my bees, my darlings!" His honeybee workers are busy. They tend the hive, feed babies, and make wax rooms. They also forage in flowers abloom across Brooklyn, so that one day Fred can make his famous honey; something te entire neighborhood looks forward to tasting. Lela Nargi's beautifully written story, accompanied by Kyrsten Brooker's collage-style illustrations offer an inside look at the life of an endearing beekeeper and the honey making process.
