A Different Kind Of Hero: Book Review
The rainforest is under attack. One monkey is determined to save it. His name is Tomagochi. He’s brown. He’s small. He’s plain. But when a group of men enters the rainforest armed with bulldozers and axes, Tomagochi the monkey springs into action to defend his natural habitat. While larger animals like Peshe the tiger run and hide, Tomagochi charges into battle. Will he be victorious? Will the rainforest be saved? Join Tomagochi as he fights to protect his home and discovers just how special he truly is.
Leah Beth Evans was inspired to write her story as a 4th grade student after studying about the rainforest. She continues to enjoy writing stories and poetry. However, her story A Different Kind of Hero has always been one of her favorites.
A Different Kind Of Hero is an adorable book. The illustrations are bright and cheery, and I look how the author has taken a fun approach to teaching children about rainforest animals and their habitats. I also enjoyed how the author was able to teach children about the consequences of the destruction of the rainforest. As well the underlying message in the book that we all are special, with different gifts and strengths. What a fantastic message to teach young children. I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up!
