Painting for Honey Bees is Donalyn's debut children's picture book.  Based on a true story and inspired by her charismatic cousin and beekeeper, Unkle Ray (his unique spelling), this classic-style children's book blossoms with it's educational twist on the importance of our busy little pollinators.  It's a wonderful story to read-aloud or for young readers continuing to increase their vocabulary. The book also features wildly entertaining honey bee fun facts, a list of ways you can help protect honey bees in your own backyard, and includes a thirty-word glossary. To continue sharing Unkle Ray's efforts in educating young minds about honey bees, Donalyn is currently writing Honey Bees at the Fair?  - scheduled release date coming soon.  Honey bees are important!  So, help Donalyn make a difference in the awareness of why we (humans) need these fascinating creatures and lots of them!
