Bunky and Lulu Find Their Place by Cindi Handley Goodeaux
We all sometimes feel a little lost, especially when things around us change! This sweet story of a clown and an elephant shows kids how, even when things feel upside down, we can find a new purpose. Illustrated with soft, colorful drawings, Bunky and Lulu Find Their Place offers the special hope that we’re all important, and there’s a reason we’re here! Kids can be inspired to think about their unique talents and how they can make a difference in their world, no matter where that world might be.
Bunky the clown and Lulu the elephant love their life in the circus, but, after 30 years, it’s time to retire. Being able to relax and enjoy life sounds amazing, but the pair quickly learn that they need a bit more structure. They make a list of fun activities – like cloud watching and drinking lemonade – and realize that they need more to do! They try several different jobs – like selling ice cream in a shop and serving snacks at the ballpark, but none is the right fit. Finally, they discover that they can team up with the local fire department, and help by putting out fires and even rescuing people in trouble.
Inspired by the real life Bunky the clown and Lisa (aka Lulu) the elephant, this book encourages both big and small readers to name the gifts and talents that make them helpful and valuable. It’s never too late to try something new, and it’s important to keep looking for your spot in your community, no matter how long it takes. Bunky and Lulu’s story is accessible and hopeful, and grown-ups reading the book will be just as encouraged as the kiddos! Especially during this past year, with so much change and upheaval, the message that everyone can help is incredibly needed. You’ll feel positive and uplifted after reading!
