About the Book

This work was inspired by many who are taking positive action in whatever way they can to reverse the problem bees face to continue their existence on Earth. Bee-Come is a collection of short stories on nature written for children. It focuses on the plight of bees, highlights the interconnectedness and coexistence on Earth. The book is written for children aged 4 to 8, to facilitate connection with nature. It can also be of interest for people who appreciate bees’ contribution to the overall balance of ecosystem and biodiversity. It also provides a list of organizations that readers may want to know to learn and participate in conserving bees and working with nature for the overall ecological balance.
“It’s so important that we recognize how interconnected and interdependent we all are for us to continue to flourish here on earth. We are all one creation. Tsehay has done a wonderful job of reminding us how precious and important bees are and what they do to support and enrich our lives. We would be lost without them”.
—Nick Williams
Author of The Work We Were Born To Do & Co-founder of the Inspired Entrepreneur’s “The stories look like they should get children thinking about bees”.
