From the author Monika Grünberg:
"Did you know that there is a wild animal that lives right in your back yard, and it is so gentle it will sit on a child's finger? Did you know this animal has been keeping plants going from one year to the next since before people even existed? Did you know it needs help, from you?
The mason bee is one of thousands of native pollinators that the circle of life depends upon. It is gentle, and beautiful, and easy to love. And it has a story to tell!"
