Don’t Step on a Bee Day – A Giveaway

July 10 is “Don’t Step on a Bee Day,” which sounds funny but addresses the real threat to our ecosystem by decline in both overall bee populations and species biodiversity. Like Maya in Rooting for Rafael Rosales, I am drawn to this environmental issue not just because it is important, but because it is one of the few environmental actions children can do something about. So to celebrate the day, I am giving away some signed copies of Rooting for Rafael Rosales and additional bee-centric swag to be determined — likely some seeds for pollinator-friendly flowers and some fun stuff. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment here; you have to use a real email address so I can contact you if you win but only I will see it. I appreciate it if you spread the word on your social networks. The more entries I get, the more giveaways I’ll do.

  2. I love that you are giving away seeds! Loss of habitat is a big part of the issue. Our large single crop structure is creating a bee food desert. If everyone planted pollinator friendly plants it would help. ..
