Hey, My name is Lindsay Hodge and I am writing a series of children's books that are losely based on/contain permacuture principles in a creative way. Here's kind of the introduction that I wrote:

"Once upon a time, in a bustling hive of honey bees, there lived a little worker bee named Hortense.
Everyday she worked hard to help her hive be strong and healthy.
She helped feed the babies and built the honey comb where the honey would be stored. She even got to help clean!
It was fun inside the hive.
Soon it would be time for her to leave the hive to collect food for her family.
At first Hortense was afraid to leave.
She didn't know what it would be like, and some of the older bees told her stories about how there were big scary things out side the hive.
But Hortense was brave.
When the time came, Hortense stood at the hive's front door and looked out. It didn't seem so bad. So out she flew into the world. These stories are all about her adventures outside the hive."

The first story has mentions companion planting and using beneficial insects to get rid of harmful insects, but in an awesome way... Just to give an example.

What do you think? Would you buy these books?
I am mighty! And this is a mighty small ad:
