Bentley is a lovable, calm honeybee. He lives in a hive in a tall oak tree. One day, the queen told the bees to get busy.
This sent them scrambling into a tizzy. But not Bentley. He chose to be patient and wait. He decided to look for a place to meditate.
Bee Still is a child-friendly introduction to meditation. Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers with more ideas for introducing meditation into your child’s life.
This wonderful book with lovely illustrations teaches children the power of mindful meditation to calm their busy (bee) minds. How delightful to see mindfulness instructions succinctly explained in rhymes. Best of all, it’s all about sharing mindfulness with your friends!

Dr. Frank Sileo’s newest book, Bee Still, is more than charming, it’s important. In a world of digital overload, the biggest gift we can give our children is to teach them how to take five minutes and just be. Read this together and be enchanted, enlightened, and embraced by Bentley Bee and his posse of friends.
