Young children will be captivated by the colorful pictures in this book plus an intriguing story that will have them spell-bound at bedtime or when they pick up this book up to read themselves.

Sapphyria's Review:

Kojo the Seadragon Gets Lost is a very cute children's story. The above synopsis describes the book very well and since Kojo the Seadragon is a short story I won't reinvent the wheel.

The book itself boasts very vibrant colors and well-drawn underwater cartoon characters. Children should enjoy the brightness, underwater scenery, and the characters created by David Chucka. The best part of the book is that is not only are the illustrations eye-catching, the theme of the book focuses on instructional ideas, as well. There is a lesson or two to be had in this short children's story.

 
Those that are mildly visually impaired may have a hard time deciphering the words because of the font used.
