It is written in the form of investigative journalism and is full of details and easy to read. Of course, I was ready to start bee keeping as I was reading the book, until I really thought of all that it would entail. I don't want to get stung by bees or have that many creatures to look after. I am still fascinated by bees and am now much more aware of their place in nature.
I do recommend it, especially if you are a nature loving, homeschool mom like me.
