MELITA MORALES is an art educator, artist, performing arts presenter, and art house curator. She holds degrees in art and secondary school education and teaches art at Marin County Day School. About Jam & Honey, she writes: "I often watch students and adults jump up from a picnic and sprint away from food to escape a buzzing bee. The book arose from an understanding that bees are critical to our biodiversity. Besides that, they give us the delicious treat of honey!"
