Bee Still is an ARC which is expected to be published on 13 Aug 2018. Thank you Magination Press for providing me with this peaceful read!
Bentley is a lovable honeybee who does not participate in the frantic buzzing of other bees. Instead, he uses meditation to help calm himself and find inner peace. Soon the rest of the forest animals are joining along with Bentley as they sit, breathe, and “bee” still!
Research has indicated that meditation can assist with improving concentration and focus, calming anxiety, and reducing impulsivity. A “Note to Parents and Caregivers” is included with information on how to teach children to practice meditation
One Line Review: Zen-tastic!
This may be the first book about meditation that I’ve read that didn’t put me to sleep. Well done! I know that the target audience is for children but honestly, every one should read this. The message of Bee Still is to find inner peace and to give yourself a few minutes every day to escape the chaos and just breathe, relax and reset. A concept that many adults need in their life.
The art style reminds me of old children’s books and the textbooks we used to read in primary school. Where you get a very watery, blurry effect. Which in relation to the plot of the story is perfect. Since not a lot of attention is given to the details of the drawings, it kind of sends a message that maybe you shouldn’t focus on every teeny tiny aspect in life.
I believe that thins book is a must in all schools and libraries.
Until Next Time,
