A Different Kind of Hero……….. Book Review


A Different Kind of Hero……….. Book Review

My Review
This is a story about Tomagochi the monkey. Tomagochi thought he was a boring plain monkey and that made him sad. Even his friends Peshe the tiger and Mocho the tucan couldn’t cheer him up. Then one day several men came into the rainforest where the animals lived with bulldozers and axes to destroy the forest. That’s when Tomagochi discovered something very special about himself that none of the other animals could do. What do you think happened? Did these men destroy the rain forest? Or wonder if Tomagochi did something to stop them? How about getting a copy of this book and find out what happened to Tomagochi and his friends?

My favorite children stories are those teaching young readers that everyone is unique and special in their own way, just as the author teaches in this wonderful book. I liked that Tomagochi’s friends were supporting him and helping him to understand how important each of them were. The characters are adorable and the colors used in this book fit wonderfully with the story. The green background even gives you the forest feel while reading this book.  I recommend all libraries that have children’s books to grab a couple copies of this awesome little book for children to have access to. And of course it would make a great addition to your child’s library as well.
