Books to Help Your Family Change the World

Ideas for change

Eleven-year old Mikaila Ulmer wanted to do something about the disappearance of bees and its effect on the eco-system, so she set out to sell a honey-based lemonade.  Using a family recipe, she developed BeeSweet Lemonade and began to sell it through local vendors in Austin, TX.  After receiving a sizeable investment through the show Shark Tank, her product is now sold at major retailers throughout the southwest.  Mikaila has sustained her original motivation to support the environment as a portion of her sales goes back into local businesses promoting bee keeping.

Blind Date with a Book

Woman Reading Book

In February a lot of libraries do book displays called “Blind date with a book.” The displays feature library books wrapped in paper so that you can’t tell what the book is. Sometimes they will give you a few hints to the content in the book and sometimes they let you go into it completely blind. Obviously there is no (easy) way for me to do this in my blog. So I’ve figured out a different solution. We are going to play a game of Library Tinder to help you find a new book you can fall in love with.
