    Dawn V Pape and Heather Holm

    ISBN-13 978-0985187750

Find out how an encounter with a mason bee changes Mason’s life; Mason conquers his fear of bees and is empowered to be like a superhero to help protect the bees. This story teaches timely and important lessons about wild bees, habitat, pesticide use and native plants–heavy topics in a light and fun way. There are definitely big concepts and big words introduced in this little book. That’s exactly what makes the book work so well for a wide audience. Even though the book looks and reads like a picture book for early elementary students, the science and social concepts are big enough for adults to ponder.
