Jocomo

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
In this tale, written entirely in verse for the intermediate to advanced reader, Jocomo's journey takes him afar, not in a plane, or a train, or a car, to a place where his differences trump "fitting in", and his talents inspire a Kingdom to grin. Included is What's A Boogle?, a printable coloring storybook. Both books feature a "words to know" glossary to aid in the building of vocabulary skills. More

A perfect book for a perfect time. In todays world not only are children cruel, but bullies too! A lovely reminder to be kind to others! A lesson to remember to love youself and to be who you are with confidence and self acceptance. I've been collecting his plush Boogles, and figurines for years. The Boogle stories would make a wonderful childrens movie or animated tv program! A must read, and great gifts.

Jocomo is brilliantly written, cover to cover, with illustrations that bring it's message to life! In a world where people can be so cruel and leave you feeling like you don't quite fit the "mold", this story line (in it's clever verse) is a beautiful reminder that you are perfect as you are--it's a wonderful depiction of self-acceptance. This is a fantastic book for children and adults alike--a MUST read!

After many years of collecting this artist's figurines and then boogle plush toys for my children, ranging from 3 to 10 years of age, I was lucky enough to stumble on a new book(I guess) by the creator of all the boogle characters. Not only is the book a charming read for all my kids, 2 girls and a boy, it imparts qualities we want to see our children adopt: the worthlessness of discrimination,self-reliance, and perhaps most important, finding the love that lies in all of us, even a green boogle who may be spurned by those who can't see beyond the exterior of an extraordinary little guy with amazing talents. The prose is in rhyme, something similar to Dr. Seuss, that adds fun to a fable that we can all learn something from, no matter the age.
