“The book focuses on the plight of bees, as well as showcasing the many benefits they bring to both mankind and out planet” says Tsehay, who wrote the book and is a firm supporter of nature’s role in the development of children’s education. She continues, “Through wisdom-rich stories and engaging illustrations I hope to make my contribution to the thousands who are already taking positive action to reverse the problems that bees face. Their coexistence on Earth is under huge risk.”The book’s first story starts at a local London park, allowing children to emerge themselves in the stories from a perspective that they understand. As children progress through the book they are treated to stories steeped with education and entertainment; all with the aim of instilling a caring and respectful attitude towards the world they are living in.
“While it’s a children’s book at heart, I am finding that many adults are also finding inspiration from the stories. I think that everyone can learn to appreciate bees’ contribution to the balance of our ecosystem and biodiversity” Tsehay adds.The author also used the book as an opportunity to connect readers with real-world action. In fact, the book provides a list of organizations that readers may want to learn about and even join, to do their bit for the conservation of bees as well as the integrity of overall nature.
