Overview
Biron the bee isn't sure he wants to be like the rest of the bees in his hive. But he doesn't know what he would be good at besides making honey. Thus begins the delightful adventures of a sprightly little bee with a big imagination. When all of Biron's exciting ideas are discouraged, he wonders if any of his dreams "as big as the sky" can come true. His amusing exploits take him from honey homes to spaceships with wings, until he's finally reminded of the importance of believing in himself—"there's no one but you who can get in your way." Written in an easy-to-understand, rhythmic and whimsical style that's accompanied by bright colorful illustrations, this collectible children's book's gentle reminder to never set limits on yourself makes it a wonderful gift for children of all ages (including adults who might also need a little reminding that they're never too old to dream big and reach for the stars).

Do you ever wonder what you might be? A painter, a banker, or an athlete on TV? Biron wondered too—quite a lot, in fact. And this is his story, from front to back. Biron's adventures take wild twists and turns. You see, Biron the bee has something to learn. Spoiler alert! Biron's amazing. But, until he bee-lieves, he can't come out blazing.* *Or buzzing.
About the author

Gregg McBride has been told he couldn't do things many times, yet went on to do them anyway. He works to inspire and help others through his books (Weightless and Just Stop Eating So Much), columns (for Psychology Today), and even a top-rated TV movie (A Heavenly Christmas). He also teaches meditation for Insight Timer and is committed to animal rescue. This is Gregg's first children's book, and he hopes it will remind kids of all ages that their dreams matter.

Anaïs Chartschenko bee-lieves that persistence and enthusiasm can transform into talent and luck. After being told by an English teacher that she couldn't write, she went on to publish multiple books (The Weightless One and Sailing Toward Us). She was advised she shouldn't dream of pursuing something as complex as opera, and so she learned to sing arias in several languages. She was informed quite firmly that being an illustrator was out of the question—yet this is her first illustrated children's book. People also said she would never grow to be 5 feet tall...well, can't win 'em all!
