Honey bees have been found to be able to distinguish between sweet, sour, bitter and salt, and thus have a sense of "taste." Bees are more sensitive to salts than humans, but less sensitive to bitter flavors.
Grow with Me peers into a beehive, a cocoon, garden soil, and elsewhere to explore the lives and growth of an assortment of creatures and plants. These books for ages six and up offer elementary but fascinating studies of the life stages that bugs, animals, and vegetation experience as they mature. Magnified photos, easy-to- follow text explaining life stages, and a life cycle recap all contribute to an educational experience focused on an up-close look at how the featured creature or plant changes and grows throughout its life span. Grow with Me: Bee can be purchased at Amazon for only $6.59.
