Links We Love

Here are a few things that caught our eyes this week.

* Taproot issue 5 includes an article by Schirin Oeding on the struggles that honeybees face. She also put together an audio component that features the voices of Vermont beekeepers. It’s a lovely piece that amplifies the author’s message—that bees are vital to our agriculture and our culture.

* As an antiquarian bookshop that offers the “old and unusual,” The Monkey’s Paw in Toronto is now on our list of can’t be missed destinations. Their Biblio-Mat vending machine alone looks reason enough to make the trip!

* We’re excited to follow the blog tour for the release of The Artful Parent! Follow the tour as the book pops around to over ten amazing blogs throughout the month.

* Check out this sweet embroidery pattern from 1811! This find from the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood gives insight into the everyday ways that literacy, science, and natural history were encouraged outside of school.
