The Hive Detectives

 "Chronicle of a Honey Bee Catastrophe" by Loree Griffin Burns is the perfect book for curious, science-minded youngsters or people of any age who are looking for a concise overview of the present state of beekeeping in the United States.  The book begins with a tour through the hives of a backyard beekeeper, then takes the reader through a discussion of the crisis of Colony Collapse Disorder in easy-to-understand terms.  Amazing color photos by Ellen Harasimowicz enliven each page.
