The Book of Bees, the big-format album about bees for kids, was met with critical acclaim and has been translated into numerous languages, among others Spanish and German. Its illustrator Piotr Socha has been awarded the Wissenschaftsbuch des Jahres 2017 (the main prize for the Best Scientific Book in the Children’s Book category). The book consists of thirty colourful illustrations which take the reader into the world of bees. We can find out how a honeycomb is created, what a beekeeper’s job looks like and what different kinds of honey taste like.
