Lulu The Beaver

By Bethany Gano

Picture Book

48 Pages

Ages 5+

Bunny Books

ISBN-13: 9781736147269

In a colony full of busy beavers, one bashful beaver is hiding a gigantic secret.

Lulu tries to be a typical beaver, but her dream of being an artist is getting out! Despite her friends’ encouragement, Lulu’s struggle with fear and self-doubt has led her into a pattern of destroying her artwork — until an unexpected encounter changes Lulu, and the forest, for good.

With funny asides, sound effects, and elements of comic-book style, this eye-opening tale urges kids to confront gloomy thinking and gives them the courage to bravely share their gifts.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A truly delightful story about following your dreams. Lulu wants to be an artist, but that’s not what beavers are meant to do. Well why can’t she be both? I think as parents we need to teach our kids to follow their dreams, no matter what they are. If they love to do something, then let them do that something to the best of their ability and cheer them on the entire way. Lulu finally realized she could be both a beaver and an artist. I enjoyed the fact that Lulu’s friends were very supportive of her. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and fit the book perfectly. I hope to see more of Lulu in the future!

About The Author

Bethany Gano’s first large-scale work of art landed all over her parent’s kitchen floor — despite her witty, four-year-old attempt to give credit for the fine piece to her imaginary friends! She never stopped creating, though, and eventually learned the best places to display her artwork. Bethany has worked in the commercial arts for over twenty years and loves storytelling through art and design. She is extra fond of picture books — a place where art and words can’t survive without each other. Lulu the Beaver is her debut picture book.

Off the clock, you can find Bethany covered in paint, playing board games, swimming, daydreaming at the beach, and attempting to walk her dogs. She, her husband, three kids (and other furry and scaly family members) call Central Florida home.
