Busy Bee…Who Me? Whimsical New Children's Book Instils Vital Team-Playing Values

Encouraging children to be courteous, helpful and ambitious – Mecca Dyas’s powerful new book is resonating with children around the world. Join Bree the Busy Bee and buzz off on a literary adventure of a lifetime.


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/23/2013 -- While many children’s books simply tell a story, Mecca Dyas’s ground-breaking new release fuses an adventurous narrative with a potentially life-changing moral lesson.

Titled ‘Busy Bee…Who Me?’, the book is helping thousands of children around the world understand the true importance of being helpful and always remaining a team player.

The enchanting story involves Bree, a little girl bee who spends her days playing and napping. However, after suddenly discovering a bee hive, its worker bees diligently convince her of the value of hard work and the important responsibility of joining in to help others.

“It’s a quiet lesson to children that is masked by a fun and adventure-filled story. Children don’t like books that hammer home life-lessons, so I am trying to weave the book’s positive values around a gripping and thought-provoking story,” says Dyas.

Continuing, “This has resulted in a book that children love to read. While simultaneously learning, the result is extremely positive.”

The book is accompanied by a series of plush merchandise items, an interactive website and even an opportunity for young readers to join the ‘Honey Bee Crew’. With such a positive impact on the lives of all readers, critics praise the efforts of Dyas and her illustrator, Mr. Scott.

Due to her success, Dyas has been invited to a book signing at The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 20th and 21st, 2013. All members of the media are welcome to attend and meet the author in person.

‘Busy Bee…Who Me?’ is available now from the book’s official website: http://www.breethebusybee.com
