    - With games, stickers and more!

    By Vanessa Amaral-Rogers

    Bees need our love and attention! Bee colonies are fast declining and our buzzing buddies need our help urgently if they are to recover and thrive.

    In Love Bees: A Family Guide to Keep Bees Buzzing, Vanessa Amaral-Rogers focuses on how we can help our nectar-collecting buddies flourish—and why these important insects are so awesome—through a whole swarm of engaging facts and fun activities.

    Teach your kids that conservation is cool–and what the awesome rules are to become a bee’s BFF (Best Friend Forever). Find out together how to make a bee hotel or B-line nectar corridor, and play the Waggle Dance board game. Add exciting lessons in natural history and gardening from planting pollinator-friendly flowers to the basics of urban beekeeping—this is a call to action with a positively sunny outlook.

    Included inside:

    • How to identify different bees and which flowers they pollinate
    • Waggle dance board game (pull-out activity)
    • 64 stickers
    • Bee-spotter's survey sheet (pull-out activity)
    • And more!

    Vanessa Amaral-Rogers works for the RSPB as a communicator for birds and other wildlife. She has also worked for the charity Buglife and has a passion for bees and raising awareness. 

    "Full of fascinating facts and practical projects, it's the perfect guide to inspire nature-lovers of all ages to love bees." - Craig Bennett, Chief Executive, Friends of the Earth

    "Without bees our world would be dull and our diet mundane, virtually no flowers or fruit for starters. Love Bees introduces why bees matter and how we can all help them survive in the modern world of many pitfalls perpetrated by Homo sapiens. A great read with content for all the family." - BugLife
