a hive of busy bees
i picked this book up right after i made this illustration...now my eyes are searching for bee hives everywhere. i've been really concerned about colony collapse disorder and it has inspired my work.
this book isn't so much about bees, but rather about two children, joyce and don, who want to spend a summer with their grandparents in the country. christian life lessons abound! wholesome fun and quite lovely too.
there is another book as well, another hive of bees.
