A Buzz-worthy Interview with Beeman Author Laurie Krebs

The Beeman

Told from the viewpoint of a child whose Grandpa is a beekeeper, this rhyming text offers an accessible and engaging introduction to the behavior of bees, including: where they live, how honey is made, and what a beekeeper does. Children will love learning about the vital role of bees in the ecosystem, and will be delighted to find a delicious muffin recipe on the last page!

Ages 5 to 9 years

Reading Is Fundamental – Where the Wild Things Are – Gala

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE Gala
On Thursday, May 9, MAX and the WILD THINGS are coming out to play at RIF’s WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE Gala. And whether or not you plan to join us, you can be a part of the action.

Through a special online auction, you can place a bid on one of more than 10 items up for sale that evening – like original artworks from Rosemary Wells, Toni DeTerlizzi, or William Joyce. Be sure to set a maximum bid if you’re not going to be able to join us – that way you’ll be able to bid against guests onsite!

Or, if you’re planning to join us, you can register now and skip the step of signing up during the night of the gala.

Looking for other wild ideas? Download our free activity sheet for WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE to use with the children in your life. And then share photos or stories with us on Facebookor Twitter!

Thanks to supporters like you, RIF was able to bring characters like Max into the lives of
5 million children in need last year alone. The money raised through this auction will support our efforts in the year ahead!

Any questions? Don’t hesitate to contact the gala team at amoffatt@rif.org.
