Based on a true story and inspired by a beloved beekeeper uniquely named Unkle Ray, this picture book blossoms with its educational twist on the importance of our busy little pollinators. Throughout this charming story, young artists are colorfully engaged with honey bee knowledge. It’s a delightful tale that visually nurtures honey bee awareness for all readers. The book also features additional perks for its readers like honey bee fun facts, 10 ways to help protect honey bees and even includes a 30-word glossary.


Painting for Honey Bees is about a charismatic beekeeper who uses an artistic approach to educating elementary minds about a special little insect…the honey bee, and why they are so important to our world!
