About this deal

This book points out the difference between rigid, judgmental adults and welcoming children from an outsider’s perspective. We loved the positive message that children generally accept differences more easily than adults and are more adaptable to change. The cutest story book teaching children about acceptance as Beegu (the little alien character) becomes stranded on earth.

Beegu finally finds some comfort when she curls up with several puppies in a box until a human tosses her out.The book is geared for younger elementary students, but it is the illustrations that are extraordinary and make this book an excellent read. The absolute cutest story- discussed in a lecture about how the illustrations represent the feelings of Beegu.

I enjoyed the style of the images, which seemed to echo through colour the mood Beegu was in throughout the story e. Then an adult from an animal shelter finds Beegu and it is obvious that, “Beegu wasn’t wanted there.She is scared, lonely and confused and begins to wander around the near by city in hope to find some friends to care for her. There are not too many words on each page, so this is suitable for the youngest child, but older children (and this adult) are likely to love it too. Feeling bewildered and alone as she awaits a rescue signal from her mother Beegu sets off to find friends with the strange creatures she comes across. It would be an excellent book for teachers to use when welcoming new students into the classroom, encouraging the children to be considerate and make sure no one in the class feels anxious and isolated like Beegu. These questions could be explored with the class a discussion and/or as an opportunity for the class to create their own narrative for the reasons behind these remaining puzzles.
