I'm pleased to announce two of my books having recently earned the respect of a national classroom resource and a state reading list. Two weeks ago National Agriculture in the Classroom added Achoo! Why Pollen Counts as a Companion Resource for the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix.
"A picture book teaching children about pollen, the pollination process, and bees. The story follows a baby bear who is allergic to pollen. He learns how pollen is used by other insects and animals such as spiders, butterflies, honey bees, hummingbirds, and more. This book can be added as an extension for lessons about flowers and pollination to help students see additional benefits and uses of pollen."
Wonderful news for both books! Children in classrooms across the country will be learning and discovering new lessons on such important topics as pollen, the pollination process, bees, symbiotic relationships, mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism.
One more thing I want to share! I received these marvelous bears and butterflies in the mail from Reagan (5) and Elijah (3). They are so precious I have hung them in my studio! Thank you so much for thinking of me. I will cherish them. :)
