DENTON, TEXAS. The Mom’s Choice Awards® has named, ‘Bee Honey Bunny and Me’ among the best in family-friendly media, products and services. The MCA evaluation process uses a propriety methodology in which entries are scored on a number of elements including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal, and cost.
“We are thrilled to earn the Mom’s Choice Awards Honoring Excellence Seal of Approval,” says Lavelle Carlson, author. “We know all the great things the MCA does to connect consumers, educators, and caregivers with the best products and services available for families.
To be considered for an award, each entrant submits five (5) identical samples for testing. Entries are matched to evaluators in the MCA database. Evaluators are bound by a strict code of ethics not only to ensure objectivity, but also to ensure that the evaluation is free from manufacturer influence. The five evaluations are submitted to the MCA Executive Committee for final review and approval.
“Our aim to introduce families and educators to best-in-class products and services,” explains Dawn Matheson, Executive Director of the Mom’s Choice Awards. “We have a passion to help families grow emotionally, physically and spiritually. Parents and educators know that products and services bearing our seal of approval are high-quality and also a great value.

Denton, Texas author and Denton, Texas artist collaborate.
Author, Lavelle Carlson, spotted an artwork posted on her local NextDoor website by local artist, John D Moulton. She approached him to ask if he would consider creating the illustrations for her (then) up-coming children’s book, ‘Bee, Honey Bunny and Me’. John specialises in portraits created in color pencils, water colours and oils, but had never tackled illustrative work before.
He lept at the chance, seeing this as an opportunity to exercise the skills he had long admired in works by the late Beatrix Potter in stories such as Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny.
The result was a collaboration, neither had quite envisioned. Carlson honed her story and Moulton followed through with illustrations that captured her every thought – and sometimes a little more.
The book tells the story of a little girl who loves rabbits and hates carrots. One night she has a dream about a baby bunny with exactly the same issue and how the mother bunny found a friend with an answer that would make her baby bunny very happy indeed.
Interestingly, Carlson and Moulton decided the final pages of the book would be dedicated to helping children understand the important roll bees play in all our lives and thoughts well worth thinking about the plight of the humble bumblebee.
Out now on Amazon in paperback and for digital download, here:
