Finding Home Again: Otis & Beetrice's Journey

About

The book follows two characters, Otis the Orangutan and Beetrice the Bee. Otis has come from the forests of Sumatra in South East Asia. He is quite pessimistic when it comes to environmental change – he has seen the damage that has been done to his home. Beetrice is more optimistic – even though she too has seen environmental change happening in her home in the UK. Throughout the book, she takes Otis on a journey, explaining why he should be positive about the future. The book is aimed at children in Key Stage 1 (aged 5-7). It aims to open up conversations with children about climate and environmental change in the UK through the use of question prompts on each illustrated page (just look for Bobby the Bird!). This book was created by a group of students as part of the society Enactus at the University of Exeter and funded by the university's Alumni Annual Fund. Illustration by Ella Huntzinger.
