“His mind filled with thoughts of all amazing things that were keeping his friend from imagining him“
I would use this book in my class because the images are engaging and children would love the humor in it.
I would use this in my future classroom because the idea is beyond what children normally think of, but something that they can relate to as they may have had an imaginary friend. Also, the images are stunning and would definitely keep them engaged.
Review: The Adventures of Beekle by Dan Santat, 2014, is a Caldecott Award winner about an imaginary friend and his journey to find a child of his own.
Blurb: This story along with beautiful illustrations tells a very touching story about friendship, imagination, and the courage to find one's place in the world.
