Adventure. Kindness. Animals. Friendship. A wonderful combination of all the traits we teach our children to help them make the world a better place. Travel with Coco as he explores Aruba on a quest to make friends. His journey does not go as planned as he faces teasing, bullying, rejection and sadness, but he never loses faith or gives up hope. He meets a physically challenged bare-eyed pigeon and they become the best of friends; sharing memories, fun, laughs and moments, that the other animals on the island can’t ignore. Like many difficulties children face, through Super Coco’s persistence and kindness, we learn to welcome new friendships and to be more accepting of the diversity around us. Each page has amazing illustrations that will take you back to Aruba if you have visited, or it will teach you about the islands’ most infamous locations and the native animals Coco meets as he keeps trying to find one who will be his best friend. This book is a perfect gift for any occasion as it will help your child become a better person and they will want to read it over and over again.It is also available in Dutch and Spanish.
