The Bee Tree


Mary Ellen gets bored with her reading, so her “Grampa” decides its time for Mary Ellen to see the bee tree. To find the bee tree, they must follow a bee, and eventually the whole town joins in! They collect some honey from the tree, and Mary Ellen learns that sometimes the sweetest treats require a little work. She learns that adventure, knowledge and wisdom do not come easily; that they must be pursued, just as they pursued the bee to the bee tree and collected the honey.
