Kojo The Sea Dragon Gets Lost-Review

 

Title:  Kojo the Seadragon Gets Lost

Author:  David Chuka

Platform:  Kindle via Amazon

Cost:  $2.99

 

Review:  Kojo, a very cute Seadragon with one big tooth, lives in the Zakari River, where he is surrounded by a close-knit supportive community.   The Zakari river is made of a rich community of Sea Turtles, Dolphins, and other various sea animals – and Kojo loved them all very much .  Kojo’s Mother and Father also loved him very much – and gave him freedom to learn and explore – however, he was not allowed to go to the South side of the Zakari River.  Kojo’s parents explained, that the South Side is very deep – and a little Seadragon who wandered there could easily get lost.

Kojo, like many young sea creatures – loved to play with his friends.  When he would play hide-and-seek with Kofi the Sea Turtle, he would often lose.  It’s much harder for a big-ole Seadragon to hide, than it is for a itty-bitty Sea Turtle.  So, while Kofi would find him quickly, it would take an hour for Kojo to find Kofi.   So, when it was Kojo’s turn to hide, He went far away – trying to find the perfect place.  He wandered in and out of shops – trying to find a place that was big enough – and that would be difficult to find.  He was tired of loosing.  It’s “The Squishable Baby” Theory that Kojo is older than Kofi (in Ghanaian decent,Kojo means born on Monday and Kofi means born on Friday).  In my very simplistic thinking – if Kojo is indeed older,  well then, he should be better at hiding, no?

Maybe Kojo has a little pride?

Unfortunately, Kojo wondered in uncharted waters – and got himself in a little bit of trouble.  Luckily, the entire community was paying attention, got together, pitched in – and helped Kojo.

 

Reading Kojo the Seadragon

 

This is not only a story to teach children to listen to their parents – but to teach everyone (adults and children alike) that it certainly does take a village to raise a child.  If everybody wasn’t paying attention to the children – there might not have been such a nice outcome.  To me, this is a beautiful story about the coming together  – as a community.  Knowing each other, paying attention and working together to help each other.  It’s a story of everybody taking responsibility for everyone else – to keep everyone safe and maintain a strong sense of community.

I think Mr. Chuka did an excellent job of representing the thoughts, feelings and action of children.  I can see my own children in Kojo.

Mr. Chuka is hosting a very fun giveaway on Goodreads.  He is generously giving away 2 copies of Kojo the seadragon.  You can enter to win a copy of Kojo The Seadragon Gets Lost here.

Good luck!
