Don't Bring Rupert To The Beach by Christer Hägglund is a short illustrated children’s story. Rupert is a polar bear who lives in the north where it’s cold. One day, he went fishing but fell asleep and when he awoke, he was somewhere completely different. It’s a warm, tropical island, a wondrous place the likes of which Rupert has never seen before. There, he meets Dot, the jaguar, and they become friends. Dot shows Rupert around the island but Rupert misses the cold and the snow, while Dot loves the warm and the sand. The two friends explore each other’s worlds and have a great adventure, becoming firm friends for life.
Don't Bring Rupert To The Beach by Christer Hägglund is a wonderful kid’s story with great illustrations that help bring the story to life. It’s a simple story but with an underlying message – we aren’t all the same and we don’t all feel comfortable when we are not in the right surroundings. With just the right amount of action and a neat plot, this book is great for younger kids to read at home and at school and could be used to help children understand why some animals live in different places and why they can’t live elsewhere. It’s an easy read, written in simple language, and engaging enough to hold attention, even when you have kids with a short attention span. Cute story, I loved it. It is ideal for all young kids, and they’ll want you to read this one to them over and over again.
