Michael Beckermanabout this book: "Tripod" is a story about a three-legged dog who desperately wants to be like the other dogs… have four legs.
He doesn't understand why he is different so he embarks on a journey to find his fourth leg.
During his adventures he starts to figure out that he can do things on three legs that other dogs cannot with four.
Thus realizing just how special he really is!
It's a wonderful story that addresses feeling different, bullying, insecurities and inadequacies, disabilities, and self-respect. It's been read to four separate grade school classes ranging in age from 3 years old to nine years old. It was warmly received and loved by all of them. Two of the classroom teachers even decided to have their students do reports on the book.
The inspiration to write the book partially came from the fact that everybody at some point in their life for one reason or another, has been made to feel different. I feel like everyone can relate a moment or situation they have experienced with "Tripod" the dog.
