Jeff sits down with author Marnie Howard to discuss her new educational books called The BuzzyLuvz and how moms and dads worldwide are teaching great behavior skills to their students with the help of some little bees.
“Kindness is essential in our world today and must be reinforced during the early stages of childhood. As a former elementary school substitute teacher, I have launched a Children’s Kindness Campaign starting with my six-book series BuzzyLuvz®: Practice Kindness. This series includes Be Helpful, Be Generous, Be Polite, Be Loving, Be Positive, and Be Thankful; all brought to life by whimsical, colorful bees. These books are currently being sold on Amazon.com in both Paperback and Kindle formats.
You are certainly aware that bullying has become an even more important issue in the United States today, as our society is witnessing an unprecedented amount of violence and deaths in our schools. BuzzyLuvz® is working to resolve this issue by focusing on the root of the problem: our children’s core values. I believe that kindness is the solution to bullying. Much of the feedback I have received from parents and educators is that we need more books and programs such as BuzzyLuvz® in our school systems today. My BuzzyLuvz® book series is being very well received and I am grateful to be able to share it with you.”
The BuzzyLuvz® Effect
The flutter of a bee’s wings will create a flood of kindness that can be felt in schools and homes across the world.
