Honey Bee Haven tells the story of a small farm in the suburbs. Beekeeper Bruce rescues a swarm of bees and gives them a home on the farm. He introduces them to the children and turns their fear of insects into interest and love for the tiny creatures. We travel with them through the seasons and rich watercolor illustrations. As the children see how the bees live and work together in harmony – in the hive to make honey and in the fields to pollinate many types of flowers and vegetables – they discover that the honeybee is one of the farmer’s very best friends.
