MN Reads: "Begin with a Bee"

KUMD's Chris Harwood speaks with Phyllis Root, co-author of Begin with a Bee, a children's book written in collaboration with Liza Ketchum and Jacqueline Briggs Martin, published in 2021 by University of Minnesota Press. The illustrations were created by Claudia McGhehee.

This children's book explores the life cycle of a hive of rusty patch bumble bees. Each year, a queen bee emerges in the spring from her hole in the ground, searches for food, finds a nesting spot, and gives birth to her entire hive. From that family, new queens will be born who will each repeat that process individually the following year.

MN Reads is produced at KUMD with funding provided in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Chris Harwood is The North 1033’s Production Director and (acting) Program Director, a morning/daytime host, and the host of Soul Village. He is also a musician, a music historian, an audio engineer, and an avid record collector.
