With three generations of fishermen in his blood, Tomo is destined to become the greatest fisherman yet. But there's one problem: Tomo doesn’t like to fish. Tomo likes to invent! While gathering material for one of his inventions, he accidentally discovers his great-grandfather’s adventure journal. Along with his friend Maya, Tomo sets out to finish the adventures that his great-grandfather never completed. His unique talents and interests come in handy as he sets out to explore the world.
Tomo Explores the World is full of cute and colorful illustrations that kids will love to look at! The drawings are cartoons blended with a chalky appearance on the edges. They bring the fun story to life, taking the reader on the journey with Tomo! The lessons taught throughout the story are about being yourself and embracing the unique talents that you are given. Not everyone is going to be good at one thing. However, it is our ability to be good at different things that makes life so exciting and special. Tomo teaches readers to find what they are good at and follow their dreams!
