This is an inspiring book about getting started in beekeeping, especially designed for children. It uses the real-life experiences of twenty-three children who built their own hives, caught swarms of bees, learned how to work with their colonies, and harvested their own honey.
Packed with full-colour photos throughout, this is a clearly laid-out instruction manual, with colour-coded sections for easy accessibility. It looks at why bees are so important and deals clearly with the challenges all would-be beekeepers will face - but it also makes lots of space for fun too.
Safety is stressed throughout, and there is a section for supervising adults too.
This book is obviously for children, teenagers and their parents - but it will also be of great interest to all schools and children's organisations because it is unique in its approach and content. This is quite possibly the first ever book that recognises that children can take on this rewarding and exciting hobby by themselves. This is not just a nature-studies book - this is a how-to book that deals with one of the most important and exciting of all hobbies.
