NOTE: THIS IS A RE-REVIEW, SO YOU SHOULD NOT MARK IT AS PLAGIARIZED IF YOU FIND THAT IT ALMOST MATCHES EXACTLY ANOTHER REVIEW OF THE SAME BOOK

The Amazing Bees by Yoel Silber is a children's book about a colony of bees that fights for survival. Through this book, the author exposes the consequences of human actions on the environment, such as global warming. The writer's tone is positive and informal, making this book ideal for young kids.

The writer begins by introducing the royal family of a beehive. The family includes King Buzz, Queen Bee, Princess Debbee, and Prince Bob Bee. Princess Debbee and Prince Bob Bee are still young and they are being educated at the bee school. Princess Debbee is fascinated by the process of pollination, as she learns that she has two stomachs that that can store nectar from flowers, which then makes honey. Queen Bee receives some awful news, as not enough honey is being produced by the hive because the temperature during the day is too hor for bees to pollinate flowers. Therefore, the hive is in danger of closing down.

There were many awesome features in this book. To begin with, the writer used figures of speech, such as personification, metaphors, and dialogue to make the text much more vivid and engaging. Moreover, the writer's narration of the story was authentic and original, while the simple language used by the author allows children to understand the text. Furthermore, the drawings and illustrations in the book elevated its status, as they added interest and liveliness to it. The text was also professionally edited since I only picked up three grammar mistakes in it. What I liked most about this book was that it had several cliffhangers and plot twists, which will grasp a young reader's attention.

This book will be liked mostly by kids who like stories about animals and nature. Girls may enjoy the story more since the protagonist in the story is a princess.

All in all, this book deserves a score of 4 out of 4 stars. This is because it was original, engaging, beautifully illustrated, and professionally edited.

Lovely review. It's detailed just enough information to give you an overview without giving away too much of the story. I also like that the book introduces the causal effects of human activities to kids at a young age in a way that will be appealing to them.

This sounds like an educational and fun read for children. I can see it being used in science classes to teach about pollination. Thank you for an informative review.

The story is very good because it is educational,it teaches us that bees don't search for nectar during hot seasons.

The way the bees are represented as a family is so charming, and the illustrations add even more value to the book. The language used is very simple and fun, and the message conveyed about the importance of bees is beautiful. Amazing book, and equally amazing review.

Although childrens's books are not my biggest preference, this one caught my eye. Yoel's The Amazing Bees follows the life of a colony of bees that fights for survival, without hiding the consequences of human actions on the environment• especially global warming, which causes malfunctioning in honey production.

Easy to read, with likeable characters, and surprisingly a lot of plot twists which will make it into an intense experience for our child friends. Good job!

This book is fascinating! I love it when authors enhance the literary elements and make them exciting rather than having them be boring concepts you learn in English class. Cliffhangers and plot twists are always a plus! Thank you for writing an insightful and captivating review, Nickolas!
