Trouble in the Hive:
One day in spring there was trouble in the hive. There was no
honey left to feed the baby bees. None at all! All the
bees were flying flew around anxiously, but there were also no
flowers. Anywhere! And this was because there had been
no rain, and the earth was dry, all the flowers had wilted and died.
Bees need flowers don't they? Yes, they need flowers to get
nectar to make honey to feed baby bees and even children too!
Well, BusyBee was a little worker bee and he had looked everywhere,
but he couldn't find even a single flower! But, then one sunny
morning as he flew over a farmer's lands and what did he see?
You'll never guess what!
All for Me!
Yes, a whole bed full of flowers that the farmer's wife had carefully
watered! "Yippy!" cried BusyBee and dived into the nearest
flower. He drank and drank sweet nectar until his tummy was
full. At last he waddled up to the edge of the flower with a
fat round tummy, and burped loudly! "Shush! He grinned,
Someone might think that you're a piggy-bee!
He flapped his wings and with difficulty he flew back toward the hive
singing and happy as a bee can be. When he got there, he
thought to himself, "I won't tell anyone so that I can have all the
flowers and nectar to myself!
We need Food!
BusyBee flew to where the queen-bee was laying eggs and chose a
honeycomb cell where a white egg lay and filled it with the honey he
had made. When he finished, he flew to the hive entrance where
his friends were waiting. When he saw how worried they were
about the lack of food, he felt bad inside. The hive needed food
and he was being very unkind.
We must Share!
He knew that we must share what we have with others. We need to
be kind to our friends and let them play with our toys, even our best
ones, isn't that so?
Well, BusyBee was really very kind, so he quickly told the other bees
to follow him as he flew back to that special garden. What a
surprise they had - there were flowers and flowers. There were
red ones, yellow ones and every colour you could think of.
Making Jesus Happy!
The bees joyfully got to work gathering nectar and soon the hive was
bustling with busy, buzzing bees. And there was plenty of food
for all the baby bees and that made Queen bee very happy!
BusyBee was also very happy that he had been kind and shared his
flowers with all his friends. And children, you will be happy
if you are kind to other boys and girls and this will make Jesus very
Remember you are not a bee, but you can Bee Kind!
