The bee stretcher – help is at hand, an illustration from Busy Bee and the Silent Spring

Four bees carry an unwell bee back to the hive. In Busy Bee and the Silent Spring, named after Rachel Carson’s ground breaking book, the bees of Old Oak Meadow have to try to find the source of the illness that is affecting all the creatures living there.

Some teachers who have reviewed the story thought that there is enough in it to form the basis for a whole curriculum of outdoor and nature learning and all wrapped up in a story that children will love. The thing they liked best is the multitude of topics covered, all which are such important starting points for vital conversations with young people. The book has also been well received with the Scottish Beekeepers Association putting a copy of it along with the first book, Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow, in their Edinburgh library. It’s available on different Amazon websites and here are a couple of links https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/ and https://www.amazon.com/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/.
