Coco Courageous and The Invisible Fence is a work of fiction in the social issues subgenre. Penned for children, this charming picture book is part of the Limitless Little Leaders book series, and was written by author Gia Lacqua, edited by Diane Bailey, and has illustrations by artist Zuzana Svobodová. Covering important themes such as emotional awareness, being respectful and empathetic, and setting clear boundaries for themselves, this very important little book explains with ease how youngsters can be brave and stand up for themselves in situations where they may feel uncomfortable. We join protagonist Coco and her sister Livy Lu as they learn how to communicate with others about their emotions and set boundaries when things go wrong.
This deceptively simple little book packs an enormous message and one which is highly important for young people in today’s modern world. As we all need to learn more about boundary setting and personal autonomy (parents and teachers included), the ideas set out by author Gia Lacqua will form an invaluable part of any child’s emotional development. I could see this work being an ideal stepping stone at home, in classrooms, and even in therapeutic settings to discuss feelings and behavior. The illustrations by artist Zuzana Svobodová only serve to bring yet more life, joy, and vivacity to Coco and Livy’s story, and they really help to exemplify emotions in a fashion that youngsters will be able to recognize and relate to. Overall, Coco Courageous and The Invisible Fence is an essential book for any youngster’s reading list this year.
