"A Different Kind of Hero", ebook review

I had the WONDERFUL opportunity to review a new book tiltled "A Different Kind of Hero", written by Leah Beth Evans

This story is about a monkey named Tomagochi who lives in teh rainforest with his friends Peshe the tiger and Mocho the Tucan. Tomagochi was a little sad because he did not feel special at all, he did not feel like he had any special talents or abilities like his friends did. Until one day some mean men came into the rainforest to cut it down and Tomagochi "swings in" and saves the day!!

Here is the bio of the Author
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.

Colleen, a lifelong resident Throop, PA, earned a BFA in illustration from Marywood University in 2002. Since that time, she has worked part-time as a freelance illustrator specializing in animal-themed work. She enjoys creating her art using mostly watercolor and pastel. As a dedicated animal rights activist and full-time program coordinator for International Society for Animal Rights (ISAR), Colleen lives her dream of joining her passions for animals and art to promote a more harmonious world with a touch of beauty. Recent works produced by Colleen include t-shirt and invitation designs, children’s book illustrations, and book covers. Colleen has also teamed up with her very talented artist mother, Kathy Holmes Gedrich, and paints murals for children’s nurseries.

I read this book toa group of my kids here at the Child Care Center where I work and they LOVED it. They want their teacher to read it to them everyday. They also wanted to have a little fundraiser to raise money to plant trees on our playground!!! I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to teach children to respect appreciate the environment, or to anyone who thinks they are too small wo make a difference. To find out how Tomagochi saves the day you can purchase "A Different Kind of Hero" for yourself!

"A Different Kind of Hero" can be purchased for $14.95

  1. Katie, I absolutely loved your review - especially how the children were so taken with Tomagochi that he inspired them to take saving the environment into their own hands. How great is that?
