2018 Green Earth Book Award Finalist Lionel lives in a Paris apartment building but loves keeping bees with his Aunt Celine at her farm outside the city. But when her bees start dying, how can he help? The solution, he realizes, is in the rooftop gardens and window boxes of his apartment neighbors, representing a varied and continuously blooming array of flowers that the bees will love. Aunt Celine must bring her bees to Paris! But first he and his friends Alice and Samir must convince their skeptical neighbors and landlord, Mr. Dubi, that this is a good idea. Adorned with Parisian skylines, Bees in the City is a love letter to the City of Light and a celebration of the can-do spirit of kids. Sarah McMenemy’s illustrations recall the Parisian magic of Madeleine. The book’s backmatter explores urban beekeeping and rooftop gardening in greater depth. Fountas & Pinnell Level P

Over half a century of brilliant scientific detective work, the Nobel Prize-winning biologist Karl von Frisch learned how the world, looks, smells, and tastes to a bee. More significantly, he discovered their dance language and their ability to use the sun as a compass. Intended to serve as an accessible introduction to one of the most fascinating areas of biology, Bees (first published in 1950 and revised in 1971), reported the startling results of his ingenious and revolutionary experiments with honeybees. In his revisions, von Frisch updated his discussion about the phylogenetic origin of the language of bees and also demonstrated that their color sense is greater than had been thought previously. He also took into consideration the electrophysiological experiments and electromicroscopic observations that have supplied more information on how the bee analyzes polarized light to orient itself and how the olfactory organs on the bee's antennae function. Now back in print after more than two decades, this classic and still-accurate account of the behavior patterns and sensory capacities of the honeybee remains a book "written with a simplicity, directness, and charm which all who know him will recognize as characteristic of its author. Any intelligent reader, without scientific training, can enjoy it."—Yale Review

With a calamitous history of tornadoes, blizzards, and thunderstorms, Minnesotans have a natural interest in weather predictions. From Doppler to dandelions, the WCCO-licensed Mike Lynchs Minnesota WeatherWatch reveals the secrets of weather forecasting in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. A broadcast meteorologist for over 25 years, Mike Lynch infuses the book with his trademark enthusiasm and sense of fun. First he delves into the mechanics of the atmosphere and scientific forecasting methods from the ancient Greeks and Romans to modern Doppler radar and satellite technology. He then turns to good old Mother Nature and shows how, with her guidance--in the form of dandelions and other plants, sky color, stars, critter activity, lakes, and more--we can predict the weather. Rounding out this expert guidance are sidebars on Minnesota weather history and lore, plus a state weather almanac. Beautifully illustrated with over 100 color photographs, this book equips us with the diverse tools needed to forecast the weather in the North Star State.

Edited by Andrew Noble and Patrick Scott Hogg. The Canongate Burns is the most comprehensive and challenging edition of the poems and songs of Robert Burns ever published. Drawing on extensive scholarship and the poets own inimitable letters, this definitive edition offers a wealth of information on Burnss life and times, the hardship of his early days, his political beliefs, his hatred of injustice and his fate as a writer too often sentimentalised by biographers, critics and well-meaning enthusiasts. The poems are presented in the order of their first appearance, giving further insights into the reception of Burnss work and the guarded relationship he had both with his readers and his own fame. We see Burns as a radical figure in a British as well as a Scottish context, the peer of Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats and Byron in the revolutionary and repressive world of the 1790s. With its inclusion of recently attributed poems, explanatory notes and extensive Scots glosses, The Canongate Burns offers vitally fresh insights into the irreverent spirit and the democratic convictions which illuminate the work of Scotlands most famous poet. A magnificent and definitive work of scholarship. A thousand pages long, it provides not only a glossary and a context for the poems, but also a textual and historical note for each poem and song. Colm Toibin, Independent A very fine edition, and the long introduction, which sets out to clear the tangled banks, is alone worth the cover price.
