Penelope Panda and Kobi Koala Discover a New Earth is an exploration in preservation through connection. Penelope and Kobi are connected through life changing events, which helps them learn how to love and preserve the earth, and how to deeply connect with each other and others along the way.
Penelope Panda and Kobi Koala meet as Kobi's home is destroyed and all of his friends are lost. Penelope helps Kobi find his friends. On their journey, Penelope and Kobi find a tree that tells the pair how they are still connected to the friends they lost as well as everything else around them.
Journey To A New Earth is a story of connection. Through the magic tree Penelope and Kobi find that they are connected to a much larger world and the beauty and comfort of that feeling. The writing is beautiful, but also superfluous, placing the reading level for a little older audience of about 5 to 9 years old. The pictures are bright, colorful and fun. The style of the illustrations creates a calm and relaxing feeling. I really liked the message and theme of this book, but was a bit confused as to the delivery. It seemed that Kobi's story was directly related to the devastating Australian wild fires, but didn't focus at all on that event. Overall, a great idea and social story to get kids thinking about how they are connected to the Earth.
