Marie and Mr. Bee (Proverbs 12:14b Version)

by Margaret Welwood

What happens when a not-so-busy bee entices a little girl to neglect her work? "Young readers will be so busy turning pages they won’t even realize they’re taking in some of life’s most valuable truths."
See on Amazon (US)

Marie is a happy little girl who lives in a cabin in the woods, working and playing with her forest friends . . . until a not-so-busy bee entices her to neglect her work! Compassion, forgiveness, and a forever friendship follow.

By the following summer, Mr. Bee is too old to fly. But every night, Marie lifts her little friend onto her lap and reads to him from the Book of John and the Book of Proverbs.

Marie uses a wheelchair, which is clear from the pictures. However, there is only one reference to the chair in the text--when she wheels the ailing Mr. Bee back to her cabin after his expulsion from the hive. Some people appreciate the fact that the disability is present without being the focus. Others are pleased to see someone with a disability in the role of rescuer.

Also available without Bible references as Marie and Mr. Bee.


Confirms the power of great story-telling to open up our world, teach us, and help us grow
Review by KAB

Young readers will be so busy turning pages they won’t even realize they’re taking in some of life’s most valuable truths. . . . the power of choice, the treasure of friendship, the capabilities of “disabled” children, what kindness looks like. Marie and Mr. Bee confirms again the power of great story-telling to open up our world, teach us, and help us grow.
