Bea's Bees - Launch Party

We’re excited to help author and illustrator team Ellie Peterson and Katherine Pryor launch their new book for children, Bea’s Bees! We hope you can join us on April 13th at 2pm.


Beatrix discovers a wild bumblebee nest on her way home from school and finds herself drawn to their busy world. When her bees mysteriously disappear, Bea hatches a plan to bring them back. Can Bea inspire her school and community to save the bees? Bees provide us with valuable resources, and some types of bees are in danger of disappearing forever. But ordinary people (and kids!) can help save them. Filled with fascinating facts about bumblebees and ideas to help preserve their environment, Bea’s Bees encourages kids to help protect bees and other pollinators.


Katherine Pryor is an award-winning children's book author who enjoys watching bees buzz in her Seattle backyard. Ellie Peterson is a writer, illustrator, and science teacher in the Seattle area.
