The Science of Natural Disasters: The Devastating Truth About Volcanoes, Earthquakes and Tsunamis
What would happen if there were no bees in the world? It would be a disaster! Without bees, we would, of course, have no honey. But we’d also lose a lot of other foods and useful products like cotton produced by plants that bees pollinate. We would also lose the animals that eat these plants, and the animals that eat those animals! As far as important species are concerned, bees are at the top of the list – you really wouldn’t want to live without them! You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without Bees! is part of a brand-new science and technology strand within the internationally acclaimed You Wouldn’t Want to Be series. The clear, engaging text and humorous illustrations bring the subject to life and stimulate young readers' curiosity about the world around them.
