Barry the Bear and Billy the Bee teaches children the hope of finding their light within themselves. As these two take a journey to find a superficial light that is outside of themselves, they quickly learn that their real light was in them the whole time. Our hope is that our children grow up to know their worth from the very start and with that they can navigate life with confidence and truth.

If you could go on a journey to find your light, who would you take and where would you look? Barry the Bear and Billy the Bee describes the awesome adventure of two best friends in search of Barry's light. The two best friends go on a journey to find Barry's light, searching everywhere around them, with no luck in sight. Just as they both begin to give up, Billy discovers an illumination coming from an unsuspected place that they never thought to look. Through the power of friendship, Billy was able to see that Barry's light was in his heart all along. This heartfelt story ignites hope, courage, and confidence, teaching children that they do not have to go into the world to find the light that they have within themselves.
