Honey Harvest by Elissa Kerr
Genre: Children’s Fiction
Age: 4 – 8 years
It’s late summertime in the meadow. Flowers are in full bloom and honeybees float on the warm breeze. It’s now time to harvest honey from the hive.
Beautifully illustrated, this buzz-worthy book is the perfect introduction to the tools and traditions involved in beekeeping
Elissa is the author of The Sweetest Season and Sunkissed. Honey Harvest is her third picture book. She is also the founder of Scenic Route Publishing.
Elissa lives in Michigan with her husband, their two sons, and two adorable cats. When not writing, Elissa enjoys spending time outdoors or taking nature walks with her family.
A little girl and her dad love honey and are beekeepers. She imagines how the bees make honey. She thinks maybe it’s like a little factory where the bees put honey straight into bear jars. One day her dad tells her that she can go with him to the bee hives to extract the honey. They both dress in protective gear and walk until they reach the hives. It wasn’t at all as she expected. But then, she learns all about how the bees make honey.
This is an adorable book with lovely illustrations. I love the way the book teaches children and even has a question section at the end of the book.
