About the Author
On one of her many trips to Armenia, author Seta Simonian observed the world of beehives for the first time in Dilijan. She saw swarms of bees flying together like a fleet of airplanes landing, entering the hive, unloading, and flying back to the fields for more pollen and nectar. Amazed by the collaboration and hard work of the honeybees, Simonian decided to write a book about them.

Simonian’s book is the product of her learning in the sciences and arts, and of her years of experience as a teacher. It reflects the personality of someone who has traveled to and lived in many countries, and someone who has worked with diverse communities in times of war and peace. Throughout her career, Simonian has striven to improve the lives of people, especially children approaching their formative years.

Seta Simonian lives in Glendale, California, where she works on creative projects.
