The Secret of the Honey Bee
In the hexagonal beehive, the Boss Bee yells at the worker bees to try harder to collect more honey. As it is Bongbongi’s first time hunting for honey,
Bongbongi is worried. His friend Bangbangi tells him not to worry and just follow. When they both go out to collect honey, Bangbangi returns with a jar
full of honey, whereas Bongbongi returns with an empty hand. They say they both went to the same place, but Bangbangi visited a place full of floral scent,
while Bongbongi went to a place full of thorns. The Boss Bee and other bees cannot figure out where Bongbongi and Bangbangi had been. When the bees find out that they were both lying, they
decide to go to that place themselves. Who do you think was right? Through this book, readers will realize that they get totally different outcomes
depending on whether they interpret the same situation in a positive way or a negative way. Through such a process, readers can learn how to look at the world in a positive way.
