“Church succeeds in illustrating the complex plight of bumble bees and illuminating the opportunities humans have to help these essential creatures thrive.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“A welcome addition that fills the gap between picture books and adult nonfiction for budding bee enthusiasts, or for school reports.” – School Library Journal

“Well-written and accessible non-fiction such as Dana L. Church’s debut, The Beekeepers, might be one of the best tools to motivate young readers and budding naturalists into examining human impact on the environment.” – Quill & Quire

“Beautifully interweaves storytelling, scientist biopics, bumble bee science, and understanding human impacts on the environment.” – Dr. Amy Toth, Associate Professor, Iowa State University
