TURN THIS BOOK INTO A BEEHIVE!: AND 19 OTHER EXPERIMENTS AND ACTIVITIES THAT EXPLORE THE AMAZING WORLD OF BEES
Spring is around the corner…and the flowers are starting to bud. And while most of us are familiar with the honeybee, a keystone species revered for its supreme pollinating skills yet feared for its notorious stinger….the mason bee, is actually the unsung hero of the insect world! The mason bee pollinates as many flowers in a single day as 100 honeybees, and mason bees don’t sting, making them nature’s non-aggressive super-pollinators. And the mason bee is found in every region of the United States! So, how can we help sustain the lives of these friendly buzzing bees? Four-Time Emmy Award-winning writer for the show - Bill Nye the Science Guy….Lynn Brunelle has written TURN THIS BOOK INTO A BEEHIVE which has 19 experiments and activities that offer a deeper understanding of what it’s like to BE a bee…and how we can help protect them!
TURN THIS BOOK INTO A BEEHIVE!: AND 19 OTHER EXPERIMENTS AND ACTIVITIES THAT EXPLORE THE AMAZING WORLD OF BEES is an indispensable guide with a removable book jacket and tear-away paper nesting tubes that turn into a home for mason bees, with each “room” providing space for 10 to 12 mason bee babies!
ERIC MITTENTHAL FROM THE NATIONAL HOT DOG AND SAUSAGE COUNCIL
It’s a marriage of two American icons -- baseball and hot dogs -- and the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC) estimates that baseball fans will consume more than 19 million hot dogs and 4.6 million sausages during the 2018 Major League Baseball (MLB) season. The combined hot dog and sausage total could stretch the entire continental U.S. from Safeco Field in Seattle, Washington, to SunTrust Park in Atlanta, Georgia. The hot dog total alone would reach as high as 5,332 One World Trade Centers, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and sixth tallest in the world.
NEW OFFERINGS TO BE INCLUDED IN UPDATED MLB HOT DOG AND SAUSAGE GUIDE
While perennial hot dog favorites remain staples at ballparks across America, teams are introducing new creations that are sure to be all-stars. The NHDSC has maintained a MLB Hot Dog and Sausage Guide, which features photos and descriptions of the most unique hot dog and sausage offerings at all 30 MLB stadiums, along with a sampling of classic favorites. The NHDSC will be updating the guide to reflect this year’s newcomers, so fans can savor all the choices available to them in one, convenient location.
