Being different can be scary.  Sometimes you feel like an outsider and sometimes you feel so alone. This book will help any young child learn to accept their differences, their strengths, and their unique qualities. It will teach them to be a good friend to accept others as they are. It will show them that everyone is different and everyone has feelings.  This book will teach your kiddo to stand up for others, to make a difference, and to lend a hand.

This book  will teach your little one that they are not alone. It was a cute read that my 8 year old truly loved. She loved how bright and fun Batty Betty was and how Abel was willing to stand up to the beavers. She loved that Abel was positive and fun. Overall, it’s a great book and would be an asset to any classroom or bookshelf!


Back Cover:

When A tuba named Abel goes out marching by himself, he finds a sad banana, EVE, who has been bullied by local beavers. As it turns out, she’s not alone. The beavers also have it out for betty, a towering giant who dances like no one’s watching.  Abel sets out to defeat these beavers, but soon discovers it’s not about winning- it’s about finding your own music amidst ruckus and noise.
