He wandered around until he saw a boy limping along but happy hopping around. Broose watches him and mimicked him by hopping around as well.
The boy stopped what he was doing, hearing Broose hopping along. Then he greeted him and told him that his name was Bruce and that no one wanted to play with him because of his lame leg. Surprised, Broose the Moose told him his name. They both had the same name, but different writing. They found each other and played around until Broose had to go home.
Janice Spina, the author of that fantastic story, wrote at the end. I quote it here, because that it’s all about. Acceptance, friendship.
“It doesn’t matter who or what you are, we all have feelings and we should be kind and always keep other’s feelings in mind".
Great Story with moral lessons, Great drawings as well.
A vicious bear clawed Broose the Moose at a very early age, leaving him with a scar on his face. Even though Broose looked threatening because of his scar, it did not stop the other moose from teasing him.
The sad loner wanders alone through the forests until he meets a similar loner, a boy with a limp leg. Nobody wants to play with the boy, and he spends his time away from the other children. The two become friends, very different by nature but so similar in their situations.
The author and illustrator have created a sweet, simple tale, easy to understand for a young child. The rhyme style was a bonus, and the illustrations enhanced the story. The message of acceptance and friendship is highlighted clearly: accept people for what they are. I love this story because it will bring a very needed discussion to homes, schools, and reading clubs. Children will remember the valuable lesson this book conveys. I applaud the gifted team of Janice and John Spina for another great teaching story!
review by children's author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne
Was sad and knew no joy
Until one day, a lucky day
He bumped into a boy
What to know what happened then? Read the book!''''
The fabulous children's books author Janice Spina and husband, the incredibly talented illustrator John Spina, once again, bring to life a wonderful animal character, a friendless young moose who is shunned by other moose because of his facial disfigurement. The Spinas entertain young readers as they convey important life lessons about friendship and kindness.
Highly and warmly recommended.
