Although I have not yet received my contributor's copy, I have gotten a check. So it is official.
My article, "Bee: A Busy Word," will be in the May/June issue of Fun For Kidz. It has been three years from acceptance to finally being published.
The issue's theme will be about bees. I used to be a bee-keeper so I did work up a couple of articles about bees. But then I thought, "Everyone is going to be sending in articles about bees. Why not do something a bit different?" So I did research on how we use the word bee in everyday conversation, like: being busy as a bee, having a bee in your bonnet, sewing and spelling bees etc. And I told a little history about how we came to use each of those terms. It was fun.
I am honored to be a contributor to this trio of children's magazines which includes Hopscotch and Boy's Quest.
