"It's small. It's black and yellow. It flies. It's a bee! Or . . . a wasp? This handy entry in the Can You Tell the Difference? series (6 titles) provides kids with all they'll ever need to know about the differences between the two similar insects. It starts with the physical: bees are hairy, wasps are shiny. Their legs are different, too, but don't get too close—wasps are more aggressive, while bees can sting only once ('Do not get stung by a bee or wasp to figure out what it is!'). The book then delves into behaviors readers are less likely to witness firsthand, like the differences in their diets and habitats. A combination of cartoon illustrations and photographs keeps things informative and fun, while ending activities and questions test retention. A lighthearted and useful comparison guide."
