In this heart-warming tale, a lonely, inquisitive panda bear cub with a passion for reading learns a valuable lesson about friendship and forgiveness.
Seacoo, written by G. Johnson, illustrated by Yifan Luo, and published by Knew Books Publishing, is the first installment in a children's book series that chronicles the “jewels” (wise lessons) received by an adorable panda bear cub, Seacoo, and his spunky friend, Coco. Together, they engage readers as they explore life and share their love for reading.
Seacoo is a hardcover children's book with 49 pages of text and full-color illustrations followed by "Panda Jewels," which are five thoughtful discussion questions. The target market is children ages 4-10 years old, particularly in grades 3 through 5, and their parents.
While many other children's books feature animals as main characters, Seacoo differs significantly due to its educational agenda, the unique Asian-inspired illustrations, and ability to engage both children and parents in the story and beyond. The tale addresses contemporary familial struggles of mothers who must balance outside jobs and time spent with their children.
“Panda Jewels,” discussion questions based on the story, are highly applicable to children as they navigate the maturation process. Those components also bolster the book's educational value by encouraging readers to learn more about animals.
