Author Biography

Jeanette Vuuren (Jansen van Vuuren) lives in Adelaide, Australia with her husband and two children.

Her educational background as a qualified teacher with a further diploma in Remedial Education and over fourteen years teaching experience, gained in South Africa, the UK and Australia has given her a deep empathy and understanding for the special needs of students.

Working with Kindergarten to Year 11 students, with diverse backgrounds, in different subject fields as a mainstream, special needs and remedial teacher, helped her adapt her teaching strategies to meet the individual needs of students.

She especially aims to write educational and story books, including the relevant concepts applicable for specific age groups, integrating learning content with different curriculum, subject fields and life lessons.

While staying at home when her two children were young, her passion for writing started when she was doing research on remedial education and learning disabilities, creating integrated lesson plans for differentiated classes.

She pursued her passion for writing in 2009 to assist a student who was not able to sound out words, but made up her own story by looking at the pictures.

Honeybees are often feared, but in Jeanette Vuuren’s Honeybee’s Recipe Book, young readers are reminded that without honeybees there wouldn't be any tasty honey. In this 10th volume of The Honeybee Series, children will learn the fascinating process the honeybee uses to create each small drop of honey. Did you know that a honeybee makes only about a quarter of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime? I didn’t until reading this book. This is just one of the many interesting facts within the pages of this text. Readers both young and old will learn something new in this intriguing little book. For a sweet treat of a read, pick up a copy of Honeybee’s Recipe Book.

Honeybee’s Recipe Book is the second book in Jeanette Vuuren’s The Honeybee Series that I have read, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed this book as much as the first one. Vuuren’s account of the honeybee’s activities was accurate, informative, and easy to follow. The book included an excellent list of vocabulary words and even had a quick and easy recipe for Honey Crackles that would be a great cross-curriculum activity for classrooms or a fun rainy day activity for the home. Once again, Sudipta Dasgupta’s illustrations were bright and cheerful and succeeded in added an extra dose of fun to the book. After seeing the quality of two of the books in The Honeybee Series, I am quite interested in reading the entire series and would gladly add it to my own children’s library.
