Kay Kay, My Super Hero Koala Bear! by Talia
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book has a good message about bullying told in a cute way. The kids I read it with really enjoyed the koala bear. They were expecting pictures and were disappointed there were none. They all said it would be more fun with illustrations. Another thing they did not like was the mom. They did not like how she appeared to be so angry and condescending. They said she was kind of a bully to her daughter and they weren't happy at all with her. We read it once. The kiddos were okay with it but said they probably won't read it again. They did like the koala bear enough to say they would try the next book.
We firmly believe that not every book is for everyone but every book is for someone. I would recommend that if what bothered the children is something you also don't like, borrow this book and try it out. It might be your child is the someone for this book and you can buy it easily. But if your child feels as mine do, then you didn't lose any money.
