I recently had the pleasure of receiving an endearing children’s book called Bee Yourself from a group of talented University students who go by the name of Navy Holdings. I am grateful to have the opportunity to review this lovely book and be able to share it with all of you.
Who is Navy Holdings?
Navy Holdings is a Business School Young Enterprise Group from Manchester Metropolitan University. Navy Holdings believe having self-confidence is as difficult as ever in todays society, and finding acceptance is crucial during a child’s upbringing.
Bee YourselfBee Yourself is an aspiring children’s book aiming to celebrate diversity and underline the importance of acceptance from a young age. The aim of this very special book is to not only provide children with the understanding that people are different to one another, but to bestow the idea that it is okay to be different and encourage self-confidence with any differences a child may feel they have.
Bee Yourself follows the journey of Barney the Bee on his mission to find his stripes. Barney the bee was inspired by the symbol of the ‘Manchester Bee’.
The story starts with Barney the bee who lives with his family at the hive realising that he is a little different than the other bees, Barney doesn’t have any stripes. Barney begins to feel different than the other bees and decides to go a journey to find other stripe-less bees. Along the way Barney meets a variety of wonderful and unique characters who help him on his journey of self discovery. The book teaches children a beautiful lesson that we are all special in our own way and all belong.
