Bixley Baines and the Beehive Fence

 

This is a story based on Dr. Lucy King's scientific elephant and bee research with headquarters at Save the Elephants in Nairobi, Kenya. Bixley receives a message from his cousin, Lucie who has a problem with elephants trampling her garden.  Together they construct a fence made of beehives which repels the elephants, saves the garden and reduces the human-elephant conflicts. The book contains a summary of Dr. King's research and a knitting pattern for an easy Bixley sock.

Bixley Baines and the Recycled Crayons

 

This story takes Bixley into the world of recycling used and unwanted crayons.  Working with the Crayon People, Bixley learns about the chemistry of crayons, the number of crayons made each day that could end up in a landfill, and how to make new crayons out of old crayons.  With this new knowledge he creates new crayons for the local school so they can compete in a big coloring contest.  The book contains coloring pages and the chemistry of wax along with directions for recycling crayons at home.
