World Bee Day with Bee Happy Book With Happiness Ideas, Crafts and Worksheet for Elementary Schools

/ March 18, 2024

Native bees occur on every continent except Antarctica. Wherever there are insect-pollinated flowering plants—be it in forest, farms, cities, and wildlands—there are bees. Because HAPPINESS is Free!  I wanted to create a memorable “Love Is” book but that was taken.  So I created what happiness means to me, inspired by my childhood.  To love is to be happy and we have a free be happy kit for kids and parents to make at home.  Bee Happy shows you in my book Bee-ing Happy with Unicorn Jazz and Friends.

World Bee Day 🐝 is celebrated on May 20th, and we’re calling on educators passionate about teaching the vital role bees play in pollination, essential for food production and maintaining biodiversity. This day also shines a light on the challenges bees face, such as habitat loss and the use of pesticides. In preparation for World Bee Day, we encourage teachers to integrate the following activities into their classroom to support and promote bee conservation:

 1. Create a Bee-Friendly Garden: Guide students in planting bee-friendly flowers and shrubs in the schoolyard or create potted plant projects that students can take home. 2. Awareness and Education: Develop creative projects, such as posters, presentations, or digital content, to spread awareness about the importance of bees and the threats they face.
3. Bee Conservation Events: collaborating with local environmental organizations or beekeepers for a hands-on learning experience. As an author committed to children’s education on environmental topics, I believe incorporating these activities into classroom learning can significantly impact our young learners’ awareness and actions towards bee conservation.

To love is to be happy. We all seek happiness and meaning. What a great happiness book for kids and a conversation starter with finding happiness in simple things like HOLDING A BALLOON, BAKING WITH MOM, or JUMPING WITH FRIENDS.  click here

Happiness comes from within

That’s just some of the creative happiness sayings and statements you will find in the children’s unicorn books series, Unicorn Jazz.

Happiness is a journey and not a destination.

It is important to teach children at a young age that you can be HAPPY without material possessions.  Being present and giving your time, energy and love is what really matters and what children will develop as part of their core sense of value.

Social Emotional Intelligence

Many elementary schools today are incorporating social emotional learning and emotional intelligence and topics that cover feelings and emotions.  It was without hesitation that I wrote the Bee-ing Happy with Unicorn Jazz and Friends to come up with many happiness sayings all packed in one beautiful and colorful book for really, kids of all ages

Ten Questions

We put ten questions at the back of the book so that when your child wants to read the same book over and over again, they can discover new ideas for their own happiness.
