School is about to start in a few weeks, but there is still time for some summer reading! Your child might come to HoneyFest already an expert, or perhaps HoneyFest will pique their curiosity. At Wyck, we see plenty of children visitors who are initially afraid of bees, but still very curious. Most kids leave Wyck thinking honeybees are pretty cool. The Honeybee Conservancy has recommended some wonderful books about bees for children, to help educate them about the importance of bees. Check them out here:
- What If There Were No Bees? A Book About The Grassland Ecosystem, by Suzanne Slade.
- The Buzz On Bees: Why Are They Disappearing? by Shelley Rotner
- UnBEElievables by Douglas Florian
- The Beeman by Laurie Krebs
You can find more information about the books on the Honeybee Conservancy website: http://thehoneybeeconservancy.org/2015/11/07/5-bee-books-for-children/
