Simonian's "Be Like a Bee" "Be Like a Bee" explores the life and
work of one little bee while teaching lessons about nature, science,
and life virtues.

Be Like a Bee, a new book by Seta Simonian, has been released by
RoseDog Books.

Be Like a Bee is about the life of a particularly diligent bee
named Merry. Interspersed with scientific details about the role and
development of bees in nature, the narrative combines fiction and
science in order to teach life lessons. It encourages children to
follow Merry Bee's example of hard work and compassion in order to
achieve happiness.

Be Like a Bee offers inspiring examples of social interaction and
communication, while at the same time encouraging an appreciation of
nature. This beautifully illustrated publication provides children,
teachers and parents with scientific knowledge and entertainment. The
songs of this book are recorded and available on a CD for purchase.

About the Author On one of her many trips to Armenia, author
Seta Simonian observed the world of beehives for the first time
in Dilijan. She saw swarms of bees flying together like a fleet of
airplanes landing, entering the hive, unloading, and flying back to the
fields for more pollen and nectar. Amazed by the collaboration and hard
work of the honeybees, Simonian decided to write a book about them.

Simonian's book is the product of her learning in the sciences and
arts, and of her years of experience as a teacher. It reflects the
personality of someone who has traveled to and lived in many countries,
and someone who has worked with diverse communities in times of war
and peace. Throughout her career, Simonian has striven to improve the
lives of people, especially children approaching their formative years.

Seta Simonian lives in Glendale, California, where she works on
creative projects.
