COCO LOVES TO TRI
Children's Book Review by Carol Goodrow
By Michele Bredice Craemer, illustrated by Jess Golden
CoCo Loves To Tri is a cute little picture book full of adventure and competitive fun.
Michele tells CoCo's story in rhyme and if you've ever trained for an event, you'll find something in CoCo's story that reminds you of your own.
In the book CoCo participates in a triathlon. And - true to the spirit of KidsRunning.com, even though CoCo starts with swimming, then biking - running is CoCo's favorite. "..CoCo's best at running. That's the thing for him!"
CoCo will engage children's imagination and will be a book your child will want to revisit each time they enter or train for an event.
