Susanne was inspired to write this book by Mike Edwards from the UK. Mike came to South Australia to identify South Australian native bee species which were helping, or could help, in the pollination of farmers’ crops. Mike’s visit and research activities were supported by Natural Resource Management and Syngenta.
Susanne became fascinated with these little Aussie insects, looking for them and watching them for hours. "Mike, Rowan (Mike’s son) and I took hundreds of photos during the time they stayed with my husband, Michael, and I. All the photos in this book are my own.
Mark, our then four-year-old, began talking at kindergarten of catching bees. I wasn’t sure what the teachers thought, so I took along some pictures to show. The teachers embraced the subject and incorporated it into a lesson for the children, including a song called ‘Here is the bee’."
This led to the idea of a picture book aimed at children but with enough information to satisfy the adult reader.
"South Australian Native bees" is also available-
I hope this book encourages people of all ages to be more aware of these little South Australian bee-uties who do so much and with a little help, could do so much more.
