A Mother for Choco
By Keiko Kasza
Choco is a little bird who lives all alone, until one day he decides to go looking for a mother of his very own. Choco asks lots of animals if they could be his mommy, but each time he’s told they can’t possibly be his mommy because they don’t look alike. It’s not until Mrs. Bear asks what a mommy does that lonely Choco begins to have hope.
Keiko Kasza writes and illustrates this moving tale about Choco’s journey to find a mother. Heartfelt illustrations depict the little bird’s realization that what’s important is not what a mom looks like, but what she does. The expressions of the characters, particularly their eyes, help convey the emotional depth of the story, from the sadness in the animals rejecting Choco to his despair and ultimate happiness when he finds his mother and new family.Check Availability
