This year Ag Literacy Week topic is focused on Beekeeping

In celebration of National Agriculture Week (March 18th-22nd) many ESHPA members have volunteered throughout the state to read the  book The Beeman with a beekeeping theme to second graders. Students and teachers will also benefit from hands-on lessons and receive follow up activities. The book will be given to the school library with a bookplate recognizing the donor and NY Ag Literacy Week. 1,400 books were donated last year while thousands of second graders participated in fun and educational activities.

The Beeman

by Laurie Krebs and Valeria CisThe Beeman

The Beeman by Laurie Krebs and Valeria Cis uses rhyming text and colorful illustrations to show all of the aspects of beekeeping. A young boy tells the story of how his grandfather produces honey, from the clothing he wears and the equipment he uses to the honey extraction process. Not only does this charming book explain the methods of honey production, but it also educates about the various types of bees and how they work together to produce this sweet agricultural product. The book concludes with six pages of additional information about bees, beekeeping techniques and equipment, honey, pollination, and bee dancing.
