Karate Kakapo by Loredana Cunti and Stacy Curtis - ESSENTIAL

Karate Kakapo by Loredana Cunti, illustrated by Stacy Curtis.  PICTURE BOOK.  Kids Can Press, 2019.  $17. 9781771388030



Tomorrow Kakapo is trying for her black belt. She know her strikes, her stances, and her blocks, and her kicks – well, except for the flying kick. She tries to remind her instructors that kakapos can’t fly –but they, instead, remind her that there are different ways to see the same problem.

Cunti writes a fun and easy understandable book about perseverance and accomplishment with some great info about karate thrown in. I love Curtis’ illustrations, too.  The scene when the kids and parents are watching the trials is a great matching game.
