Dr. Kari-Lynn Winters educates children about bees in her latest book

Published on October 10 2013


Dr. Kari-Lynn Winters was recently featured in the St. Thomas Times Journal, discussing her book "Buzz About Bees".

"When Kari-Lynn Winters heard populations of bees were declining around the world, it twigged her interest.

The St. Thomas native, who is an award-winning children's author and an assistant professor in teacher education at Brock University, wondered if children knew how important bees are to global ecosystems.

She looked for books that adequately addressed the issue but couldn't find any, so she decided to write her own.

The result is Buzz About Bees, a book of facts and interactive exercises aimed at teaching kids about bees and their role in food production."
