Readers will rejoice that Bentley the bee is back in this third book in Frank J. Sileo’s award-winning series. When compassionate Bentley sends loving-kindness thoughts to himself and others, he can feel his heart growing:


May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be safe. May you be peaceful.  


When Willie Wasp steals Bentley’s favorite red scarf, it really stings! Bentley has the whole garden buzzing as he works through the situation. This sweet story shows the power of strong, positive, and loving thoughts. Includes a note from the author with more information about loving-kindness and related meditation, and guidelines for how readers can practice being heartful just like Bentley!

Bee Heartful: Spread Loving Kindness is a delightful addition to Frank Sileo's earlier books Bee Still and Bee Calm.  In the enchanted garden where they live, children will again meet Bentley Bee and his friends. These garden charmers teach how to send love, good wishes, kindness, and compassion to others. It is beautifully illustrated, and a powerful lesson in how to be truly happy ourselves.” — Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness

“A bee-utiful introduction to the practice and power of loving-kindness.  Bentley shows all of us how to grow the seeds of loving-kindness in our own heart and beyond.  More important now than ever!”
—Christopher Willard, PsyD, Psychologist, Faculty Harvard Medical School, author of many books including Alphabreaths and Breathing Makes It Better

Bee Heartful: Spread Loving-Kindness will bring warmth and kindness into the hearts of children. Author and psychologist Frank J. Sileo strikes the perfect balance between artful storytelling and heartful guidance for social-emotional learning. Illustrator Claire Keay’s endearing illustrations portray characters that will invite readers to practice loving-kindness with their sweet protagonist, a bee named Bentley, and his animal friends. Masterfully done!" —Whitney Stewart, author of Mindful Kids: 50 Mindfulness Exercises for Kindness, Focus, and Calm
