‘B is for Beekeeping’: Fate resident publishes children’s alphabet book

A portion of all book sales will be donated to nonprofits dedicated to the conservation and protection of honeybees

FATE, TX (July 18, 2022) After two years in the making, Fate resident Justin Weiss has just published a must-have children’s book for all beekeeping enthusiasts.

“This week something really cool happened. Well…actually it took two years to get to this point,” Weiss wrote on his Facebook page. “It’s always been a dream of mine to publish a book and I’m excited to share the news that it’s finally here!”

The book is designed to encourage the next generation of beekeepers by teaching the ABCs of beekeeping with playful illustrations and easy-to-understand vocabulary.

Weiss shared, “I chose to write a children’s alphabet book about beekeeping for a few reasons:

1. I wanted to give my kiddos something special while they were still young – and hopefully they will want to share it with their kids one day, too.

2. I started beekeeping a few years ago on a whim. While at first I was afraid of handling honeybees, it turns out having thousands of them buzzing around is quite therapeutic. This hobby has lifted my spirits when I’ve most needed it and I’ve enjoyed sharing it with my friends and family.

3. Honeybees are amazing! Did you know that pollinators, most often honeybees, are responsible for one in every three bites of food we take? They are critical to our survival! While my two beehives can’t save the world, I still want to do my part by supporting organizations that are dedicated to the conservation and protection of honeybees – which is why a portion of all sales of this book will be donated to those non-profits.

B is for Beekeeping can be found on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/B-Beekeeping…/dp/B0B5N85JK5/

Weiss also reported yesterday that B is for Beekeeping reached #1 New Release on the Kindle edition.
