Bee Still: An Invitation to Meditation
Bee Still: An Invitation to Meditation is by Frank J. Sileo. This is a fictional book about Bentley the bee. The other bees were really busy, so their job put them “into a tizzy,” as the book says. Bentley, however, wanted to be patient like I try to be. Why I like this book is because the illustrations by Claire Keay are beautiful. All the characters in this book have alliterative names, like Holly Hummingbird and Sabrina Skunk. I like words, which is another reason I have chosen this book. Here, Bentley shows me how to meditate. “It’s okay if a thought pops into your head. If this happens, focus on your breathing instead.” Some animals say things like, “Will it really help?,” “He looks kind of absurd,” and “What are you doing, Bentley?”. But then, the animals decided to meditate before they “burrow, build, or pollinate.” I went to a summer camp about mindfulness this year, and I think this book would be helpful for anyone interested in mindfulness. Kids of any age, who need to calm down right now, should enjoy this book.
