Description

What would happen if there were no bees in this 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. Around half the fruit and vegetables in our supermarkets would disappear! Not only that, we would also lose the animals that eat these plants, and the animals that eat those animals! Some people are scared of bees, but there's rarely any need to be. Bees will sting in self-defense, but usually they don't disturb humans. Yet we need them. As far as important species are concerned, bees are at the top of the list; you really wouldnt want to live without them!
Series Information
What would your life be like if you had to do without all the modern inventions you take for granted? How would you cope without a toilet? Could you get by without electricity? If antibiotics had not been discovered, would you still be alive today?
Starting from these thought-provoking questions, each title in the fantastic You Wouldn't Want to Live Without... series takes us on a historical journey. We learn how people really did cope in the past, and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. And so to the future: What further changes can we expect to see in our own lifetimes? This science and technology strand within the internationally acclaimed You Wouldn't Want to Be... series features fantastic full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles, making the books attractive even to reluctant readers.
