"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
