A Little Maya the Bee Background: 
One of the best-known and beloved children’s brands of all-time, the stories of Maya The Bee have been passed down among generations of families for years. Originally a German children’s novel by Waldemar Bonsels, The Adventures of Maya the Bee was published over a hundred years ago in 1912. Since the original publishing, the book has been translated into many other languages and enjoyed by children all over the world. In addition to the book, Maya The Bee is also a comic book series, appeared in various iterations as animated series and now a major animated feature film.

Our Thoughts:
I was THRILLED to get the opportunity to review this movie. My husband is from Germany and he recalls watching "Biene Maya" aka Maya the Bee when he was a young child and we even have cartoons that Rose's Oma and Opa have sent her from Germany of Biene Maya that she has watched. So needless to say - this is a special little Bee that has touched our family for generations. Maya the Bee Movie didn't disappoint! It was a wholesome, family-friendly movie that teaches about friendship and courage - Rose absolutely loved it, as did her father and I - we would highly recommend this movie!!!!
