Children's Corner: Guji Guji

Guji Guji is a crocodile who was raised in a duck family. He is a happy croco-duck even though he doesn't look like the rest of his family.  But one day he meets a bunch of crocodiles who explain to him what he is and then ask him to betray his family by making them into crocodile dinner. Guji Guji decides he is not like the crocodiles and finds a way to save the day.

What I love about this book is it broaches a lot of hard subjects all at once and it does it well. Some times we don't look like our family, sometimes we have hard decisions to make, some times there is pressure from peers, but what really matters is who we are on the inside. This is a wonderful story about being true to yourself no matter what. I love the message and Kidlet loves to see Guji Guji succeed.
