The B Story
There once was a bee named Bea,
Who wanted to enter the annual styling-bee contest, because she knew that she could be more than a regular yellow and black or yellow and brown bee.
“ I leave my hive everyday and bring back such pretty colored pollen and it all gets washed off. I want to be a different colored bee.” thought Bea.
So Bea thought and thought and thought and she finally remembered! When I go to the berry patches, I sometimes get some of the juices on me! Some blue, some berry red, some purple and some black! I will take a juice bath for the styling bee contest!
Bea entered the local styling bee contest and named her entry:
A Bee of Many Colors.
On the day of the styling bee, Bea was ready with her berries and a tub of water to bathe between her change of colors. Other bees, beetles and butterflies brought bonnets, boots, bows, bandanas and bangles.
Finally it was her turn to show the judges and everyone there her new colors!
“I am about to be a blueberry bee!” she said to everyone.She jumped into the bowl of blueberries and flew around the room. She was the prettiest, bright blue berried bee anyone had ever seen!
The judges and the crowd oohed and ahhed. Bea took a quick dip in a bowl of water then jumped into a bowl of raspberries and flew around like a tiny, red bouncing ball.
Bea took another dip into the bowl of water and then jumped into a bowl of blackberries and turned a deep purple! The judges quickly made their decisions and said:
“THIS YEAR’S WINNER OF THE ANNUAL STYLING BEE IS…..
BEA BEE with A BEE OF MANY COLORS!”
Bea was so happy! She greeted the crowd and said:
“REMEMBER YOU CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO BE, IF YOU BELIEVE IT CAN BE!”
