Review: Beegu

Beegu
Beegu by Alexis Deacon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I recently pulled this book back out and read it aloud during a stuffed animal sleepover program, for no real reason other than I wanted to and its quiet, slyly funny tone seemed to fit the tenor of the program. I usually gravitate towards louder, brasher, more animated read alouds for story time, but I really enjoyed the challenge of getting the kids engaged in this quieter story. It wasn’t difficult at all, except for the one child who kept screaming “It’s DEAD!” any time he saw Beegu sleeping.

This gently humorous tale of an alien who has crash landed on earth and is looking for friendship is a great addition to any evening storytime, or in a friendship storytime as well.
