There were countless lessons nestled within the pages of this book – on life, forgiveness, grief, and bees. While reading, I constantly stopped to tell my husband something that I had learned in the book and his response was “you must love this story because you keep interrupting your reading to tell me about it”. Yes.. yes, I did love it.
🐝 All the bee information was fascinating and fun to learn.
🌎 Lessons about protecting our environment and our wildlife.
♥️ Three incredible, unforgettable characters (okay, four if you include the dog).
💪🏼 Left me feeling encouraged to make a change and stand up for what’s right.
😭 Get your tissues out because that ending.. well, it gave me all the feels.
If you don’t have this book on your reading list, please add it. (Link to purchase) It’s a story that will stay with me for a long time and also gave me a great appreciation for the little honeybees buzzing around my backyard this morning. 🐝
