“These are delightful read-aloud books for your little people, which will fire up their imaginations and their interest in their natural environment. If you haven’t got the Beetle Bottoms yet, you really should– they are a joy!” – Sue

Beetle Bottoms and the Eyes in the Night is a children’s book that celebrates acceptance of people, races and cultures and the beauty of seeing the world through a child’s eyes.

Qty

After a swarm of bee’s lands in her tree, Pip wakes to discover a pair of eyes outside her window.

She is surprised to find the eyes belong to a boy called Hummer. It is the first time either of them have seen a different coloured Beetle Bottom and although shocked at first by their different appearances, they like each other instantly.

 

As a mum I want to know that the books I am buying children are fun to read, I want them to have gorgeous Stingerillustrations and I want them to bring out the best in my child.

We want our children to navigate the world confidently, for them to stand tall and say this is who I am; we want them to love themselves for who they are and to love others for what makes them uniquely them.

When children are raised up in a family and community who celebrate uniqueness and individuality negative experiences like bullying and low self esteem fall away.


PetalBeetle Bottoms and the Eyes in the Night is not only a gorgeous book with breathtaking illustrations, it is a fun book to read for the whole family and introduces you children to the amazing world of the Beetle Bottoms, tiny people who live in your garden, which can lead to lots of fun exploring and adventuring.

The book also introduces the idea of people who look different to you in a fun and loving way, leaving you as a family to simply enjoy the book or use it as a safe and fun start to conversations or simply introduce the idea.

This book is being used by many teachers as a light and fun starting point for discussions around not judging people by how they look or by their differences.

  1. I love the Beetle Bottoms Story Cards and the books. The children I care for are having fun telling me amazing Beetle Bottoms stories and we are having a lot of laughs. Thank you so much . I am showing everyone your beautiful products. – sue

  2. These are delightful read-aloud books for your little people, which will fire up their imaginations and their interest in their natural environment. If you haven’t got the Beetle Bottoms yet, you really should– they are a joy!

  3. She loves the illustrations of the tiny Beetle Bottoms. Every time she tells me that Beetle Bottoms are only as big as an apple pip, it ties straight in with her love of all things magical and fairy like. She particularly loves the illustrations of the Honey Keeper Beetle Bottoms house.

    What I love about the story is that is looks at the visual differences between people in a way that children can relate to easily. It has created conversations between my children and myself about how just because we might look different doesn’t mean that we are that different really.

  4. The images on Beetle Bottom products are cute, colourful and my girls just adore them. They loved the fairy like characters and are now on the look out for Beetle Bottoms in the backyard.

  5. This is a series that I would highly recommend be at the top of that list for this year!

    Both books offered a lot of scope for talking and thinking which is such a critical part of sharing stories with little ones, if we want them to learn the language we are expecting them to master. And after we read them, there was a lot of fun searching for Beetle Bottoms in the fairy garden that is such an integral part of my granddaughters’ playground. And as we were looking we learned about petals, and thorns, and bark, and all those nature-related words. No wonder we adored these books. In fact, when we had a recent hailstorm, Miss Nearly 3 was concerned that her Beetle Bottoms might have been hurt or drowned!

  6. Beetle Bottoms and the Eyes in the Night is a gorgeous exploration of the truth that children judge each other on their connection with each other and not appearances, as well as a timely reminder to parents on the subject of ‘inherited’ prejudices.

  7. Beetle Bottoms gets a big tick from myself and my 3 children. There is a decided lack of products out there these days that actually believe in not only stimulating our children but also encouraging their imaginations, while also making them feel good about themselves and others in the process. Beetle Bottoms fulfills all this and more.
