Toddlers, Tots and Teens Tuesday: Ooko

Written and Illustrated by Esme Shapiro 
JULY 5, 2016; 32 Pages
Penguin Random House Canada; Tundra Books
Genre: picture book, children's, animals, friendship

(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)


Ooko, is a fox with a stick, leaf and rock BUT he does not have a friend to play with.  Ooko then goes on a journey to find a friend and encounters different kind of "foxes".

I love the artwork in this picture book and think children will be attracted by it as well.  The story is very sweet about finding a friend to play with, and discovering the differences in people.  It is an easy read for those just learning.  I would recommend this great book to any child and their adult!
