Buzz, buzz! Have you seen these cool little insects called bees flying around your yard or garden? They’re actually busy working and gathering food for their families (from our flowers). But bees also do a very important job called pollination. That means they help our plants grow and reproduce — putting healthy food on our tables and keeping our gardens blooming. So we need to be nice to bees and help them out too!
