Foundation for Agriculture announces Book of the Year

Jan. 15, 2014 | 0 comments

SAN ANTONIO, TX

The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture presented its seventh annual "Book of the Year" award to Laurie Krebs for "The Beeman." The book introduces young readers to bees, beekeepers and the pollination process.

Krebs is a retired elementary school teacher. She began her writing career by creating stories for her class. Today she lives in Virginia with the Beeman himself, her husband, Bill.

"I am thrilled and honored to have 'The Beeman' selected by the American Farm Bureau as its Book of the Year," Krebs said, adding "I wrote the story because I am married to The Beeman!"

As her husband began reading about his new hobby, he shared his enthusiasm and knowledge with Krebs, who was fascinated and invited him to talk to her first grade class.

"The children, in turn, learned so much and loved his photographs and beekeeping equipment," Krebs said. "I wrote The Beeman so that honeybees could be introduced to classrooms that my husband couldn't visit," she explained.

The Book of the Year award springs from the Foundation's effort to identify "accurate ag books," a collection of more than 400 books for children, teenagers and adults that accurately cover agricultural topics. Book of the Year selections are educational, help to create positive public perceptions about agriculture, inspire readers to learn more and touch their readers' lives as well as tell the farmer's story. The Accurate Ag Books database is available at: http://www.agfoundation.org/.

The Foundation has created an educator's guide and the Bee Ag Mag publication as companion pieces to "The Beeman." Also for the first time ever, the Foundation is offering a Spanish text version of the Bee Ag Mag.

In honor of Krebs' recognition and the host city of the American Farm Bureau Federation's 2014 Annual Convention, the book's publisher, Barefoot Books, has generously donated 100 copies of "The Beeman" to San Antonio Public Schools.
