Fortunately, while Marie neglects her duties, many of her forest friends continue to help their parents and take care of their chores before coming out to play. Also, Mr. Bee, experiences some troubles because of his laziness. Through watching the positive example of her friends and Mr. Bee’s bad example, she learns that laziness doesn’t profit, and it’s better to finish one’s work before having fun.
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 fact that Marie is in a wheelchair exposes young children to the reality of people with developmental needs. It shows Marie as a normal person and a hero to model. The author, Mrs. Welwood, 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.
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. Lots of things to talk about after story-time. Lots to talk about after story-time.
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.
Marie and Mr. Bee, tells the tale of a young girl who listens to some bad advice from a visiting very lazy bee. Before listening to Mr. Bee, Marie is a responsible hard working young lady. Afterwards, taking it easy sounds kind of good. Soon she finds out like the Bible says, “Hard work brings reward.”
Marie and Mr. Bee, is a simple and sweet story, with some good examples and lessons for young readers. I liked how her friends, Brother and Sister Squirrel, Fox and Little Bear were obedient and did their chores. One of my favorite lessons in the book is when Marie forgives of Mr. Bee and is his faithful friend.
The illustrations by Coralie Rycroft are precious and help tell the story perfectly. This book will capture the imagination of young readers and show good examples about work, obedience, friendship and forgiveness.
I would recommend the story of Marie and Mr. Bee, for young readers. I think I would have liked it when I was a little girl. I would like to thank Margaret Welwood for the opportunity to read this book. This book is recommended for ages 4-8.
