Description

The illustrations beautifully demonstrate the different emotions Beegu feels throughout the story, with his ears moving up and down just like a puppy dog when they’re happy or sad. Having only a sentence or two on each page really draws the reader into the pictures which are a good talking point for how Beegu is feeling at different points in the book.

We loved the positive message that children generally accept differences more easily than adults and are more adaptable to change. There are some questions which are left unanswered as a reader such as “Why didn’t any of the people on the street seem to notice Beegu, particularly when she didn’t seem to be of their world? She feels lost and scared and tries to make the best of the situation, so she attempts to make friends. I love how the children and puppies in this story are so welcoming to Beegu and it’s a big part of this story how the adults are not so welcoming. Sad and alone she finds comfort in a box of abandoned puppies outside an animal shelter but it is soon apparent that “Beegu wasn’t wanted there” when she is discovered by an adult.Her mother finds her and, again, another wonderful illustrations shows little Beegu reunited with her parents. RAT LAW’ states that ‘Cheese Belongs To You’ – at least until someone bigger, stronger, faster, or scarier decides otherwise. This book is charming and an excellent read for KS1 children, particularly Foundation stage and for classrooms with UAL and SEN children.

This book teaches the importance of being kind to others and welcoming others into a new environment. The finches do the same thing every day: they say good morning, they say good afternoon and good night.With this message behind it, I feel it can be read to any children whether they are four or eleven, there can be clear discussions after and during the story in terms of their comprehension of it and what the important factors were. I looked through some books I had packed away to go up to the attic today, they’re all coming back to the book shelves, this one is lovely! The cutest story book teaching children about acceptance as Beegu (the little alien character) becomes stranded on earth. I love it when Beegu finds some friends, the puppies and snuggles up happily with them, and the scene with the children.

The story is a great one to use with all ages, with the lesson behind it being to accept everyone for who they are. 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. Finally she finds some children on the playground that welcome her, suggesting that children are much more open- minded as they have fewer misconceptions. Then an adult from an animal shelter finds Beegu and it is obvious that, “Beegu wasn’t wanted there.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. Unfortunately a dog shelter owner and a primary school teacher put a stop to her adventure in the school and again is left to be alone. Beegu's spirits are sinking lower than ever just as the mother ship arrives, in this simple, bittersweet picture book that shows us our world through the three eyes of an innocent outsider with the help of stylish art and a wry, understated text. This is a fun, interesting and moving story with a happy ending, beautiful illustrations, colour palette and wonderful message. This book points out the difference between rigid, judgmental adults and welcoming children from an outsider’s perspective.
