Welcome to the magical world of bees!

 Join Melissa, a newborn bee, as she explores her cozy home and learns about the hive with her sisters, brothers and their beloved Queen. Everyone does their part with love in oneness. When she is old enough, Melissa summons her courage and ventures out into the big world, dancing with flowers and making new friends, as she revels in nectar and pollen collection for her family. When the hive becomes too crowded, the Queen honors Melissa by asking her to be a scout to help find a new home.

While following Melissa’s adventures, readers may glimpse at how bees cooperate and co-create, care for babies and the Queen, find nectar and pollen, communicate, make honey, and protect themselves. Rich with endearing and vibrant illustrations, this book weaves story, songs and images into a tapestry of joy, wonder and appreciation for the ancient lineage and loving service of the honey bees as they nurture and celebrate life.                

Appendix bonuses include a glossary, inspiration for a bee garden, bee inspired activities, wisdom of the bees, bee appreciation information, community resources, references, and more.
