    ABCs of Beekeeping Spelled Out in Lively New Children’s Book

    Suburban beekeeper Justin Weiss aims to inspire the next generation of bee enthusiasts and environmentalists with his vibrantly illustrated new children’s book, B is for Beekeeping: An Alphabet Book.

    With concise, easy-to-understand language, such as “C is for comb,” and “H is for honey,” Weiss introduces young audiences to the ABCs of beekeeping and the critical role that honeybees play in the ecosystem.

    “Did you know one-third of the food we eat gets pollinated by honeybees?” asked Weiss, who 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.”

    In B is for Beekeeping, Weiss uses each letter of the alphabet to teach a beekeeping term and idea, and each fascinating new fact is brought to life by a bright, playful illustration.

    Perfect for parents, grandparents and teachers, B is for Beekeeping intends to encourage children to explore the “un-bee-lievable” world around them and to respect some of the smallest, but mightiest, creatures.

    Folios Jarlsberg Cheese Wraps

    Jarlsberg cheese is the only cheese of its kind in the world. This mild, nutty cheese, similar to Swiss cheese, was first created in Norway for the specific purpose of being the tastiest cheese! Wrap your sandwich materials, vegetables, and meats in Folios Jarlsberg cheese wraps.

    Folios Cheddar Cheese Wraps
