Honeybees are a crucial part of our food chain. As they gather nectar from flowers to make sweet honey, these bees also play an important role in pollination, helping some plants produce fruit. But large numbers of honeybees are disappearing every year... and no one knows why. Is a fungus killing them? Could a poor diet be the cause? What about changes to bees' natural habitat? In this real-life science mystery, scientists and beekeepers are working to answer these questions... and save the world's honeybees before it's too late.

It is a great book explaining Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). It is smooth and explains nicely in a way that younger children can understand too. I would mostly recommend it for children in grade 3-6

Without honeybees, we would only be eating oats, rice, and corn. Now bees are disappearing in large numbers each year. Investigate why.
