Learn the ABC’s of Beekeeping
Making learning fun keeps educators and students enthusiastic and open to new elements of their education from the youngest to the oldest. What about incorporating learning a basic principle like the ABC’s along with something else that is very important in our overall world. Something like... Bee Keeping!
Suburban beekeeper Justin Weiss aims to inspire the next generation of bee enthusiasts and environmentalists with his vibrantly illustrated new children’s book, B is for Beekeeping: An Alphabet Book.
With concise, easy-to-understand language, such as “C is for comb,” and “H is for honey,” Weiss introduces young audiences to the ABCs of beekeeping and the critical role that honeybees play in the ecosystem.
“Did you know one-third of the food we eat gets pollinated by honeybees?” asked Weiss, who started beekeeping a few years ago on a whim. “While at first, I was afraid of handling honeybees, it turns out having thousands of them buzzing around is quite therapeutic. This hobby has lifted my spirits when I’ve most needed it, and I’ve enjoyed sharing it with my friends and family.”
In B is for Beekeeping, Weiss uses each letter of the alphabet to teach a beekeeping term and idea, and each fascinating new fact is brought to life by a bright, playful illustration.
Perfect for parents, grandparents and teachers, B is for Beekeeping intends to encourage children to explore the “un-bee-lievable” world around them and to respect some of the smallest, but mightiest, creatures. B is for Beekeeping is the must-have children’s book for all beekeeping enthusiasts. Encourage the next generation of beekeepers by teaching them the ABCs of beekeeping with playful illustrations and easy-to-understand vocabulary.
