The Travelling Beehive
By Juan Hernaz, Illustrator of “The Travelling Beehive”
The Travelling Beehive is a new free illustrated book that examines in depth the importance of pollination for our current lifestyle.
Halfway between literature and popular science, deeply documented, this book offers a didactic view of the activity of the domestic bee and other pollinators, for children and for adults, beekeepers, biologists and entomologists.
A Teacher’s Guide has also been developed to help non-experts to understand in depth the details represented in each of the sheets.
Its printed edition (spanish language) will be distributed next September in schools and libraries of the North of Spain as an educational resource. The authors and the institutions behind this publication believe that its presence is important and necessary beyond the Spanish school: the children of today are the men of tomorrow.
