The Beeman

A long time family friend of the Bower family sent us this book recently. It is about a little boy and his grandpa, who is a beekeeper. The illustrations are gorgeous, it is a cute story (practically tailored to Eddie and John), and the back has a nice summary of all the details of bees and honey making for older kids to learn from. The last page has an apple and honey muffin recipe, which of course I made since we just harvested honey and picked a bunch of apples (really it is just like zucchini or pumpkin bread, just using apples and honey instead of the other fruit and sugar, respectively).
If you're looking for a cute, educational, new book for your kiddos I recommend this one!
