    Emma and the Bees by Virginia Mortola

    Emma is a curious girl. She likes to explore and learn. And she does it right in her neighborhood, very close to her home. Her curiosity takes her to venture into the world of bees: their magic, their mystery, and the delicate natural balance that is necessary for them to continue to fulfill their role in the ecosystem. The ecosystem of Emma, her neighborhood, and everyone.A story that brings us closer to a world full of color, music, and silence. A place that invites thoughtful contemplation where, if we close our eyes, we can hear the subtle sound of honeycombs, the scent of wildflowers, and the sweetness of honey.
