Dana Church’s new middle grade non-fiction, The Beekeepers, isn’t just for kids. Her research is sound and the information shared within its pages is valuable for readers of any age. If you didn’t know our bees were in trouble, this book will help you understand why and give you tools to do something about it. The Beekeepers changed my relationship with the chonky buzzers in my own backyard and I now watch them with interest rather than run squealing into the house.
