Coco, a lonely black rooster, lived in Aruba off the coast of South America. Coco was separated from his family during a terrible storm and he grew up alone at the Arikok NationalPark. Coco wished for a family and friends and he wanted to have someone to do all the things friends did together. He decided to explore the other regions of the island to make new friends. He tried the wild goats, whiptail lizards, the whirling dinosaurs, the troupial bird, donkeys, black-headed seagulls, land crabs, fruit bats, and the leatherback sea turtles, but Coco's quest to find a friend did not go the way he wanted. The next day when he set out in search of a friendly face, he was again rejected by a pack of stray dogs and feral cats. Would Coco finally be able to find a friend? 

Super Coco: Will You Be My Friend? by Dr. Jay and Julie Lipoff is a heartwarming story of compassion, kindness, acceptance, tolerance, and friendship which is relatable to many readers. Coco's character is real and tangible and many children will be able to connect with his situation in real life. Ellisa DiRenzo does full justice to the concept and the adventure with her wonderful and charming illustrations that bring the story and characters alive. The life lessons conveyed through the story are precious and a good learning experience for all young readers. Tutors and parents should use the story of Coco for storytelling sessions to help youngsters understand inclusivity, acceptance, and other life lessons in an adventurous and entertaining way. It is also a good way to introduce children to new animals using the pictures in the book.
