Are you looking for a new book to read? Well, I have just the thing – I have written my third book, Eddie Teddie and the Bees, and it is out now!
I was inspired to write my latest book after learning about bees at school. I like to raise money for charity when I can too, so I wanted to also write about that.
Helping to save the bees
Bees are really important; we need to make sure we look after the bees because they look after us. They do a great job at pollinating plants which means our food will grow. I decided that I wanted to donate money from the sale of my new book to go towards helping the bees so I have sponsored a beehive at Sunnyfields Honey.
As a treat for publishing another book, Mum surprised me with a trip to the hive I’m sponsoring to see all the bees who live there. It was a brilliant day! My friends at Sunnyfields taught me so much about bees and how to look after them. They didn’t have a bee suit that was small enough to fit me but luckily the bees were very friendly and didn’t sting me at all.
One of my favourite parts was when we got to smoke the bees. It does look like all that smoke could be a bit scary for the bees but it just keeps them nice and relaxed whilst we are checking in on them.
At the end of the day Sunnyfields Honey gave me a certificate to show that I was sponsoring a hive. I am very proud of helping the honey bees and have put my certificate up in my room. In fact, I might take it to school to show my teacher and friends.
Collect all of my books
Are you going to read my new book? I think you will really like it! I would love it if you could let me know if you do read it and which bit is your favourite.
Don’t forget about my other two books. They are called Eddie Teddie’s Big Summer of Saving and Eddie Teddie Goes on Holiday. I go on a fun adventure and learn a little bit about money in those ones too!
