This is a beautifully written and illustrated book, aimed for children between the ages of 5 – 11 to read themselves or with a parent.
Betsie Valentine, a spirited young girl, embarks on a magical adventure learning about the secret life of honeybees.
Meriet Duncan became a beekeeper seven years ago and called herself an ‘accidental beekeeper’ because it is something she fell into rather than decided to do. From the moment she opened up her first hive she fell in love with the honeybees. It didn’t take long before she became aware of the extent to which our planet relies on them. She enjoys giving talks at children’s schools, W.I’s and other community groups which are always very warmly received.
What an achievement it would be to change perceptions about bees and where better to start than with young children through the medium of their schools and parents who will all learn at the same time.
