Summer, Bees, John Green

It's been a wonderful 2012 so far, buzzing books from school to school. Thanks to all the student worker bees, teachers, and librarians I've met during this school year. It's also been a joy to meet some of my favorite people (or bears) such as Corduroy and author extraordinaire John Green.

Wherever you are, I hope you get to read a lot of books this summer and to quote awesome John Green:

YEAR OF READING and Neil Gaiman's bees

I'm sending a special thanks to Australian blogger 366 Books: My Year of Reading for her lovely post about THESE BEES COUNT! and recognizing that bees are vital as nature's farmers.

Neil Gaiman is a bee enthusiast, too. Check out this amazing hi-speed video of him installing new bees into a hive. Video credit to Matt Kuchta for this fabulous piece.  I've tried to upload it, but if it doesn't show, visit this Vimeo link to see the bees.
