Review: Kobee Manatee Heading Home to Florida by Robert Scott Thayer

Kobee Manatee takes a rare summertime trip from Florida all the way up to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. But he needs to get home before winter sets in or he’ll die from the cold. Kobee meets two new friends along the way; Tess the seahorse and Pablo the hermit crab. Will their twelve hundred mile journey south be a safe one with so many unforeseen obstacles ahead? This beautifully illustrated children’s informational picture book about the rare and threatened manatee is for parents, grandparents, children, teachers and librarians who want a captivating adventure that can be enjoyed again and again.

We received this book via NetGalley. The illustrations within the book is a great eye catcher. The story okay. K didn't really seem to much interested in it like I hoped, being as he loves to read about animals and stories with animals. He liked the facts more than anything. I did like the story being told and how he made friends along the way. I would say this is a good read for all ages the colors and pictures will keep the little ones interested while the story being told and the facts will keep the older ones wanted to read more.
