  1. The Beekeeper’s Lament: How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America

Hannah Nordhaus embarks on the tale of John Miller, a 4th-generation beekeeper hailing from the humble state of North Dakota. Using his expertise, he was able to help out during a time when there was a bee shortage and provide food for others. You will have the opportunity to extensively learn a lot about the importance of bees in agriculture and in commercialism through this sweet page-turner!

“The Beekeeper’s Lament is at once science lesson, sociological study, and breezy read….A book about bees could easily descend into academe, but the author settles for nothing less than literature.” – Boston Globe

  1. Where Honeybees Thrive: Stories from the Field (Animalibus: Of Animals and Cultures)

Author Heather Swan shares the story of individuals from various areas of ecological expertise bonding together to tackle the issue of Colony Collapse Disorder. The end of each chapter is even complete with colored artwork of bees!

“This book is pure gold. To understand the life around us is perhaps the most important thing we can do for our planet, and Where Honeybees Thrive is a huge step forward. We are too inclined to think that the tiny animals don’t matter, or that they’re dispensable because there seems to be so many of them. If you know people with that opinion, please give them this book because it can change their minds.” – Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs

  1. I Am Bee

I Am Bee is a fun children’s story that will captivate your child into their “small” world. Allow them to have fun learning about biological and ecological concepts along with why bees are important to the world we live with its delightful artwork. 

“This book is great for small children! It is educational and has beautiful illustrations. My child enjoys this book (and it helps him fall asleep).” – Anonymous Amazon customer

  1. The Honeybee Man

Meet Fred, a beekeeper from New York who says  “Good morning, my bees, my darlings!” each morning from his rooftop. This book makes a great gift for children in preschool to the 2nd grade to learn about the art of beekeeping. We almost feel as if this book could have been based on our favorite Bee Man himself! But alas, it turns out there are many people in the world who are equally as passionate about bees as Jerry is (which is a great thing, of course!).

“The Honeybee Man is one of my favorite children’s books. I have used it twice for school projects and I appreciate that both fiction and non-fiction are combined in this book. Great, fun read!” – MVMa, Amazon customer
