Just last year, bees made it onto the endangered species list for the first time. This is a major cause for alarm among ecologists, as the insects are integral to the human food supply and to many ecosystems. Furthermore, while urban beekeeping has become a new trend, it was recently reported that one-third of U.S. honeybees died last year. With an arising need for educating kids about the importance of bees in the global ecosystem, and with an aim toward conservation, publishers have a hive full of new fiction and nonfiction titles for young readers of all ages aimed at demonstrating the import of this essential insect.
