This was an eye opening book for me as a fresh beekeeper. I heard the author interviewed on NPR and immediately ordered a copy. I am now thrilled when I look around and spot native bees wherever I am. The stories in the book and history of bees that we have studied I search fascinating.
This is a wonderfully written book that takes you on a poetic, brilliant, and educational journey of the bee. I could not place it down!A must read for anyone interested in the plight of the bee and pollinating world. I especially enjoyed the literary references.
Interesting, educational book about bees, and the issues faced to save them. I especially liked the chapters where the author described the actions of farmers to increase the population of not only honey and bumble bees, but more unknown types just as essential to plants. The theory that plants evolved to attract bees, and vice versa is well explained and compelling. The book is too short, and pictures not only drawings would have been nice. Specific instructions on how to support bees by growing certains plants could be helpful. I noticed in my own garden a tree whose flowers are long lasting and attracts numerous bees everyday, while other flowers are all but deserted. Ultimately, it will be down to farmers and gardeners not beekeepers to save bees, by creating environments suitable for them, and altering their practices to preserve them. Those alfalfa farmers described in the book are the trailblazers of the trend. They will need to not only farm the land but become beekeepers, as my father was on his farm.
Only honey bees create honey and the author had to know this prior to sending this to print. All of the pictures are B&W and there are a lot of taken from Wikipedia Commons. Some are nicer, copyright ones that should have been printed in color. Overall, I was disappointed but did learn a few fresh things after having read a lot of other books on bees.
If you like other Karen Katz books you'll like this one as well. It is amazing for Spring and Summer since it is about insects. But if you've ever read a Katz board book you know that they can be too detailed. Board books are supposed to be geared toward babies and young toddlers who are just learning to keep books, turn their pages, and focus on them. Therefore the best board books use less details, less words, and less colors which is beautiful much the opposite of a Karen Katz books. With that said, I still use them a lot in my baby storytimes (I'm a librarian) and will continue to use them. If you are buying this for private use or for a gift, I would honestly recommend this for no one younger than 2.
All of Karen Katz's books at this level are excellent for beginning reading to babies! I believe in reading to kids immediately and often!!! Both of my girls never had to learn to read in school. Proof that hearing the sound of the word, seeing the word and picture association, over time, works!
My daughter was given this book as a show latest winter when she was about 9 months old. She loved it the first time we read it and hasn't stopped loving it since (she is 18 months now). Between her two older siblings and herself we have amassed LOTS of board books, but I can easily say this is her favorite. She especially likes to cry "EEK!" on the spider page.
My 20 month old twin grand babies love this book. The large, colourful pictures grab their attention and they are learning about various bugs. It 's a book they reach for and being to me to read time after time.
This book is an truly unbelievable glimpse into the history of adult toys in the US. I work in adult retail, and I am a large nerd who wanted to know how the industry has grown to be what it is today.I cannot articulate how engaging this book is, and I'm already on my second read. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants an in-depth, well-researched glimpse I to the inner workings of the adult novelty business.
This book is a deeply researched and very well written history of toys in the United States from the 1960s to the present. Lieberman, who has a Ph.D. from University of Wisconsin-Madison, appears to have interviewed almost every key player in the field, including several who have since passed away. She has mined obscure archives and rare documents, local newspapers and scholarly books, weaving it all together in a compelling story filled with vivid portraits of the key innovators in the sex-toy business. These innovators range from Betty Dodson, whose feminist workshops taught women to masturbate with vibrators, to Reuben Sturman, a shady millionaire and tax hack who had an empire of adult bookstores. She tells a sophisticated and nuanced story that connects toys to broader currents in American culture. She shows that toys once represented, at least to some feminists, a strong weapon versus the patriarchy. Men, both and straight, also promoted toys as tools of liberation. And indeed toys are now widely acknowledged in famous culture. But Lieberman shows that, despite this acceptance, toys have lost much of their radical potential, becoming acceptable primarily for use within heterosexual relationships.
Hi Hallie, Perfect read, this brought tears to my eyes when I read Farley Malorrus, Co Founder Ben Wa Novelty Corp. Lots of memories about dad, the business, and the excitment of the 70's, 80's, and 90's...I miss dad, he was truly a pioneer and just trying to bring people some joy, and intimacy whether they were alone or not. He had amazing intentions and in the end, a healthy line of products, hypo allergenic, so I won that battle. Thanks for sending me a copy, I bought a Kindle and Flew through it, Perfect simple read, and best as I could see the Truth, the Whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Love you Hallie.
