Bea's Bees

Katherine Pryor (Author) Ellie Peterson (Illustrator)


Beatrix discovers a wild bumblebee nest on her way home from school and finds herself drawn to their busy world. When her bees mysteriously disappear, Bea hatches a plan to bring them back. Can Bea inspire her school and community to save the bees? Bees provide us with valuable resources, and some types of bees are in danger of disappearing forever. But ordinary people (and kids!) can help save them. Filled with fascinating facts about bumblebees and ideas to help preserve their environment, BEA'S BEES encourages kids to help protect bees and other pollinators.

"A beautifully illustrated story of the invaluable connections between people and planet. Beatrix shows us all the value of purpose, perseverance, and our humble friend, the bee. This book is a great conversation starter for children (and their parents!)." - Tami Enright, Executive Director, The Bee Cause Project
"This is the perfect book for budding scientists and S.T.E.M. educators. It tells the inspirational story of a girl who observes a problem with the local bee population and acts on it. Through observations and studies, she comes up with a plan to bring back local bees...that works! Along the way we learn all about bees and why we are beholden to them for much of our food. Make a beeline for Bea's Bees!" - Rick Swann, author, Our School Garden!
"A sweet introduction to the magic of science in the natural world, Bea's Bees shows kids they can find answers, solve problems, and make a difference." -Kelly Jones, author, Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer
"Bea's Bees is everything I look for in a childrens' book -- it is delightful, educational, and uplifting! The inquisitive protagonist, Bea, sets a stellar example for children (and their grown ups!) by following her curiosity, investigating the world around her, and taking action to make the world a better place for "her bees." This book is an absolute treasure, and I would recommend it to any parent, teacher, or school garden educator." -Whitney Cohen, Education Director, Life Lab
"Bea's Bees" will buzz in readers hands with its combination of information and sweet storyline. I'll use it when teaching lessons about how "birds and the bees" are still important partners in how we get our food. A school library with "Bea's Bees" alongside Katherine Pryor's other food literacy titles will be humming with happy readers." -Craig Seasholes, President, Washington Library Association
