Blue and Bertie

Written by Kristyna Litten

Early Years

LoveReading View on Blue and Bertie

January 2016 Book of the Month  The adventures of giraffes Blue and Bertie make a comforting, humourous story that explores themes of friendship, independence and embracing the unexpected. Bertie is content to spend his days with his herd, crunching leaves, sipping water, then snoring en masse, until the day he oversleeps and wakes up alone. Lost, he’s frightened until he meets Blue who reassures him, and shows him new parts of the jungle before taking him home. Bertie invites his new friend to join the herd, but Blue is worried the other giraffes won’t like him. In fact, he fits in perfectly and they live together brightly and happily ever after! Blue’s blueness is cute and funny, but also provides a vivid message that different is good.   ~ Andrea Reece
