Bees are an important part of our lives! We need to learn, as well as teach our children the importance of bees and how we can help care and protect them.

The Qur'an 1400 years ago mentions about bees (Chapter 14: verses 68 and 69)... 
God revealed to the bees: Build your homes in the mountains and in trees, and in spots of human constructions. Then eat from all kinds of fruits and travel the path of your Lord, which have been made easy for you to follow. There comes from its insides (female bees) a drink of various colours, containing healing for mankind. There is certainly a sign in this for people who reflect.

It is wonderful to see that many initiatives and campaigns are happening as people recognize the importance of bees for our well-being. Programs and initiatives such as #BringBacktheBees and Bee City Canada educates and promotes healthy, sustainable habitats for bees and other vital pollinators, which make a difference to all of us. 
The Bee Book shows us how we can create a bee-friendly garden, get started in beekeeping, and harness the power of honey for our well-being.

The fully illustrated book with colour photographs has information on everything we need to know to start our own backyard hive, setup to harvest, and more. Practical beekeeping techniques are explained with clear step-by-step sequences, photos, and diagrams. The Bee Book also shows how to harvest honey, beeswax, and propolis from the hive and use these ingredients in 38 recipes for home remedies, beauty treatments, candle-making and more.

  3. I am in Alberta. I have some bee friendly seeds to sow but first the weather has to improve a lot - it snowed again today! I myself would find this book very interesting so I'd read it first and then gift it to my grandchildren so that they can appreciate bees too and understand how important they are to our own survival.

  15. I live in Ontario. I would love to win this book for my kids. It looks very fun and educational. I am embarrassed to say I haven't really done anything to bring back the bees. I have been known to bust out in tune to "take these broken wings" you know, the save the bees commercial. That might be raising awareness...right? ok you got me, I am going to google how to save the bees and do something more productive then singing. That will be my goal this week.
