About the Author
Laura Strauss attended Southeastern Mass. University and graduated with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Elementary Education. In addition, she attended Northeastern University and graduated with a M.Ed. After a number of years working in the counseling field, she had a child and her search for a pre-school led her to discover the Montessori philosophy of education. Both of her sons attended pre-primary Montessori schools and this inspired Laura to train in this unique field. After a fulfilling 25 year career, she decided to set out on a new path. Laura combined her teaching and artistic talents and created a children’s book about a topic that she is passionate about.
Betty and Benny excitedly set off to the field of sunflowers, but soon discover something that will endanger their hive family and they must figure out a way to stop it. How will they solve their problem ? Of course, ask the farm animals to help ! Bee-Cause We Care is a fictional children’s picture book with an underlying message of raising awareness of a global issue. My target audience will be children between 2 1/2- 6. I see parents, teachers and grandparents reading Bee-cause We Care and taking advantage of a teachable moment. The rhyming verses are catchy and the illustrations endearing.
