Book Review - Kondo & Kezumi Visit Giant Island

Kondo & Kezumi Visit Giant Island

About the Book
Kondo is big. Kezumi is little. They lived on an island with fruit trees and berry bushes and flitter-birds and fluffle-bunnies.

When a surprise bottle washes ashore, they discover a map with a mysterious message: WE ARE NOT ALONE. Kezumi wants to follow the map and explore the world. Kondo wants to stay home and pick fruit from the fruit tree and berries from the berry bushes. But once Kezumi builds the perfect boat, the best friends set sail together to see . . . well, they don't know!

So begin the adventures of Kondo and Kezumi, where islands of cheese and giant mountains await. Rising stars David Goodner and Andrea Tsurumi team up for this three-book illustrated chapter-book series filled with charming quirks and unexpected discoveries. Get ready to set foot on uncharted territory with classic themes of friendship, community, and exploration.

My Take on the Book
What a great book that brings in so many messages of friendship and community. The book itself, while short was so much fun to read with my daughter and because of the messages that were included within the book, I found that the book really opened up some great lines of communication between my daughter and I in regards to the topics that I mentioned. The book also has great illustrations that draw you further into the book page after page. All-in-all this was a fun book for the whole family.
