A Tale of Two Beast Review and Animal Adventures at the Snow Library
A Tale of Two Beast written and illustrated by Fiona Roberton is a wonderful story of seeing an event from two sides. The first story is told from the little girl’s perspective and is titled The Strange Beast. Her story begins as she is walking through the deep dark wood from grandmas house she spies a small beast hang upside down from a tree and it seems to be upset. So the little girls rescues him by taking him home and cares for him HOW she thinks is best for the little beast. The beast’s side of the story is titled The Terrible Beast. This story starts with the beast hang from his favorite tree quietly happily singing when out of nowhere he is captured, taken away from his home and made to do things he didn’t like. In the end the girl and beast learn how to understand each other and that neither one is terrible or strange and in seeing this how to have fun together. The Kane Miller website has some great activities to go along with the book.
On Saturday the kids and I went to see Animal Adventures at the Snow Library in Orleans. The Animal Adventures employees brought 10 animals and for each animal the presentation followed the same format; give the animals name, facts about the animals while they let the kids see/touch the animal and then take questions. Today they brought a ferret, armadillo, Blue Tongued Skink, Jungle Carpet Python, Chinchilla, Alligator Snapping Turtle, American Alligator, Kangaroo, and Coati.The program was well organized and the kids were engaged and found in very exciting and interesting. I would highly recommend it if a local organization has Animal Adventure to go or to check out the Family Zoo and Rescue Center in Bolton, MA.
