Already On My Bookshelf!
Although it is not a children's book, The Wild Bee Handbook is the perfect handbook to use with kiddos when learning about bees. Many handbooks designed to identify insects are difficult for smaller hands to hold - this one is just right to carry along on a hike when you want to name the wild bees you see along the way. It's also a perfect handbook for learning strategies to support your local pollinators!
Ideas for Making it Real
The Resources chapter is superb for planning ways to make it real for your child. There's a section for ongoing bee research, as well as one identifying ways to participate in Citizen Science Projects. Finally, there are resources for developing a bee garden or wild habitat creation.
