Don't Bee Afraid By Michelle Cooke
The purpose of this book is to have people face their fears. I have been afraid of bees my whole life. I realized that the more I learned about them I could see that they shouldn’t be feared.
I found that bees are key to our survival. The reason we need bees is that they are the critical to the pollination of fruits and vegetables.
Most food chains wouldn’t be possible. It is my hope that with some of the things that I want to share, that you too won’t Bee afraid anymore. Whether it is about insects or about swimming in the ocean, educate yourself and maybe you can face your fear and embrace it.
I wanted to say ‘Thank You” to Farmer Bob Berube for helping me face my fears and truly educating me. Thank you for all the time you have dedicated to all the children in Dracut, Massachusetts as well.
I love your motto “The difficult we do now, the impossible takes a little longer”. For this reason I am dedicating the book to you and your SeaBees.
I also want to say thank you to my family for supporting me facing my fears!
A special thanks to Denise Porcello for having me write this book. Also a special thank you to Susan Fisher for the awesome pictures of the bees.
A portion of all proceeds from the book will be put into a scholarship fund awarded each year for the next several years to the student/child of a SeaBee as a THANK you for the service of their parent.
