Editorial Reviews


Thanks to an engaging story, complemented by delightful illustrations, young readers will be so busy turning pages they won't even realize they're taking in some of life's most valuable truths. All sorts of important ideas pop up while Marie and her friends play and work in the forest: the power of choice, the treasure of friendship, the capabilities of "disabled" children, what kindness looks like. . . . Children, parents, and teachers will be glad to find that "Marie and Mr. Bee" confirms again the power of great story-telling to open up our world, teach us, and help us grow. KAB What is not to love about this book! "Marie and Mr. Bee" is a powerful children's story by Margaret Welwood that has many lessons not only for children but for parents and educators. "Marie and Mr. Bee" is a springboard that parents and educators can use to discuss life lessons with children. It teaches the importance of hard work, priorities, friendships, compassion, and faith. . . . The author also includes Bible verses and Marie's blueberry pancake recipe at the end of the story. The inclusion of Bible verses allows parents to not only teach moral lessons from the story but show how these lessons come from God's Word. The pancake recipe allows for the parent or educator to have a fun activity with the children. Our time with our children is so short. It is important to redeem the time and make the most of every opportunity (Eph 5:16). I am so thankful for Mrs. Welwood's help in doing this. "Marie and Mr. Bee" is a great instrument for inspiring, training, and having fun with children. Greg Brown I want to read stories that are not only compelling to both my children and myself, but I also want them to help instill the values that our important to our family. "Marie and Mr. Bee" by Margaret Welwood beautifully fulfills both of these expectations. Amazon Customer This book teaches children the redemptive quality of a good friendship and how to be a good friend by following Marie's example. The fact that Marie is handicapped isn't really mentioned much in the storyline. But I think it will really appeal to kids that have some kind of handicap because there are so few children's stories that feature a hero that has problems. And indirectly you can learn that she doesn't let her problems get her down. Deanna Wiseburn "Marie and Mr. Bee" is a delightful children's book by Margaret Welwood. A sweet story reminding children about friendship and that life is not all play and sometimes we have to work! The lovely illustrations by Coralie Rycroft are drawn in muted colors and go well with the story. Although there is no mention of disability, Marie is depicted as being in a wheelchair, giving children a glimpse of what it might mean to be handicapped. The author has geared this story to 4-8-year-olds and it is a great read-aloud story, simple enough to be understood by all and to be read by the older child as well. . . . The addition of Scripture gives children the message that the sentiments of the book are not just nice thoughts but are indeed the Word of God. Anne Rightler "Marie and Mr. Bee" is a beautifully illustrated children's book that teaches values about working hard, helping one another and about forgiving others. Marie is ambitious until one day, Mr. Bee challenges her work ethic. After Mr. Bee brags about how well off he lives and how little he works, he flits his wings, leaving Marie with blueberry-stained curtains. Marie decides to take Mr. Bee's advice to let others do the work. Children will learn from Marie's gentle, loving and forgiving character. She sets a good example for Mr. Bee by teaching him that working hard is profitable and that working together is a lot of fun! Pam Enderby
