Best friends Rooster and Cat ramble down to the lagoon together every morning to practice their superpowers. One day, they meet Crab, Ray, and Shark who have characteristics very different from theirs. At first the two friends are frightened, but soon realize the other animals mean them no harm and have pretty special powers of their own.
In this colorful and beautifully illustrated book, children focus on identifying their own strengths, while also appreciating and respecting the strengths of others. Diversity, acceptance, friendship, and self-esteem prevail over fear!
Youngsters will learn about some amazing creatures–coconut crabs, black tip reef sharks, and spotted eagle rays. They live in and along the South Pacific Ocean, which surrounds Bora Bora in French Polynesia (a Society island along with Tahiti). Children will also be amazed that all of the animals’ awesome superpowers are actually true! More fun facts about these creatures are included after the story and provide additional educational value.
