How Can Aliens Be Illegal? by Terri Kelley is a delightful children's book about explaining the term 'aliens' to children. Certain terms can confuse little minds and they require a bit more help to understand them. This book talks about 'immigration' in a delightful manner that is oh-so appealing to the kids and so very understandable.

I genuinely loved the book. Books with pictures and colors are the best way to get ideas and concepts across to children. The concept that the author wants to convey is put in such a beautiful and colorful way. The illustrations lend vibrancy to the story as well. There is no better way to attract a child to a story book than with pictures and colors. The images are simple with minimal lines to make the child understand without any confusion. The illustrator of the book, Milena Radeva, has done a wonderful job and she deserves a special mention.

The author has managed to explain the concept of aliens very well. The highlight of the story book is the way the author has handled the theme - with simplicity and clarity. It's a perfect example of how a concept should be put across to a child. I would recommend every library, especially school libraries, buy a copy of this book because every child will enjoy it and also because it can be so easily understood.
